Not all data is stored on hard drives. Magnetic tape storage was common before the hard drive came along. The first hard drives that appeared were as big as dinner plates and had a smaller capacity that the average PC, or even the average cell phone these days. There are many file servers that still use mini tape drives as backup systems. Intratec Data Solutions have merged with Shift Storage Solutions who have been specialists in tape data recovery for a number of years, and we are now abler to deliver a full recovery service for all types of tape storage as well as hard drives.
