Disk Drive Recovery
Allegro Consultants, Inc. offers a disk drive recovery service in which we attempt to recover data from damaged or corrupted disk drives.
We’ve developed proprietary tools to aid in recovery attempts. Using our tools requires intimate knowledge of the internal structures of the file system, directory, and Label Table, and therefore are not separately available to customers.
In cases where a disk os mostly working (e.g., with a few hard errors), we can usually recover nearly all of the files from the drive. In cases where the disk is not readable, a third-party data recovery service may have to be used to extract the raw bits from the disk before we can attempt recovery. Note that most data recovery services have no software for, or knowledge of, the MPE/iX file system. As such, they will usually have to be asked to do a “raw” recovery of the drive rather than a file-oriented recovery.
Allegro staff has experience recovering files from many disk drives, and can quickly evaluate how successful a new recovery task is likely to be.
Allegro offers a similar service in which we attempt to recover files from damaged MPE/iX STORE tapes, including DDS/DAT data recovery, DLT data recovery, and reel-to-reel data recovery.
We’ve developed proprietary tools to aid in such recovery attempts. The tools require detailed knowledge of the STORE/RESTORE tape format and file system internals, and therefore are not separately available to customers.
Allegro staff wrote STORE for MPE/V, as well as the X-Over and Rosetta tools for MPE/iX STORE tapes, and has assisted other vendors in creating their backup products. Our expertise in STORE tapes is unmatched by anyone.
