Tape Recovery

Hello -

I have two tapes that a friend supplied. The data seems to have been formatted on each tape. Unlike hard drives, restoring the data is not so easy. For hard drives, I have access to Encase, EasyRecovery Professional (and others) to recover my data. What can I use for tapes?

The tapes are running in Sony StorStation and the tapes are Verbatim TR-3 Extras.

Thanks

RB

Do you have the software available that was used to create those tapes ?  The best thing to do is to check for the software that was used to create those tapes.  lot of software packages that perform tape backups also have the capability of restoring from tape.  By using the same software, if available, you will ensure that the data is restored correctly without any additional problems.

There are also alot of available software packages on the web used for restoring tape data files.  It really depneds upon the amount of data and the system specs.  If you do not have the original software that created those tapes, then search the web for compatible packages.  They are very self explanatory as far as usage.

I found the software that he used on Iomgea site. But restoring was not part of an option.

I search the web for more options and found eMag Solutions LLC out of Atlanta. They seem willing to help.
