Disk Conversion

Have you got a type of disk that you can’t read?

We guarantee to convert any disk

We work with the UK’s biggest blue-chip companies.

We’ve served more than 6000 customers since 1988!

Is your problem described below?

  • Have you got a strange-looking computer disk (in terms of size or shape) that you need to read?
  • Have you got a disk which is the same shape and size as the type that your drive reads, but seems to be in a different format? (from a different computer or operating system)
  • Has someone asked you to put something onto a type of disk that they can read but you can’t?
  • Do you need to read a disk which came from a type of disk drive that you have long since got rid of?
  • Have you got some data that you need to put onto CD or DVD or a hard disk or onto the web?
  • Have you got a whole library of disks where you want to get the data off onto another media, such as onto different disks or onto tapes?
  • Have you got a disk that you can't read because there's something wrong with it?
  • Have you got a disk where you can only access part of its contents?
  • Have you got a disk where you need to make multiple copies or put it onto multiple CDs or DVDs?

If you have any of these problems, we can help

Click on any of the following links to see a list of the relevant types of data conversion that we can deal with:

floppy disks

disk packs

optical disks

hard disks

We also handle all the different computers, operating systems, backup software and file formats involved in getting things into the format you want.

Once we have got the files off any disk you send us, we can do one of two things:

we can put the files from your disks straight onto the type of tape or disk you want 'as is' without changing the data format of your files

additionally we can also convert the files from your disks to any other file format, before we put them onto the type of tape or disk that you can read.

Why are we so effective at solving these kinds of problems?

Firstly, we set out in 1988 to tackle all the computing and technology jobs that nobody else wanted.

We soon discovered the following:

The more of them you do, the better you get!

Since our beginning we have found that the best way to solve the widest range of difficult technology problems was to build up the word’s most sophisticated database of thousands of (often obscure) problems and solutions.

This has proved to be the best way to develop a detailed understanding of how to ask the right questions, in order to identify the right solution to a seemingly insoluble technical problem.

We have developed long-standing relationships with enormous numbers of individuals who are each experts (often retired) in solving one particular kind of technological problem.

When you call us with a problem, our long memories, detailed records and expert systems help us to ask you the right questions in order to 'get a handle on your problem'.

People tell us that we seem to know 'more than is humanly possible' about the most obscure problems, but we don't hide the fact that our knowledge is constantly augmented by our network of enthusiastic collaborators.

In fact, once we have solved your problem with some unusual or old technology, we might actually have the audacity to ask you to help us if someone else comes up with a similar problem in future (which perhaps gives an insight into how we appear to be so knowledgeable!) and offer to pay for your help!

We work on the principle that:

'the more problems we solve, the more problems we CAN solve'
