Can I Recover Information from a Damaged Recording Media?

    Yes, you can still recover data stored on a damaged recording media, as long as the files have not been written over. The severity or type of damage your recording media sustained is a main factor on the success rate of data recovery. Below are examples of recording media available:

    • Tapes (VHS, Microcassette, Audio)
    • Compact Discs (CD)
    • DVDs
    • Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) media
    • Flash media (such as Memory Stick® media or Micro Vault® storage devices)

    Companies like Sony Media Services or DriveSavers® Data Recovery offer professional data recovery services. For more information and pricing, visit the Sony Media Services website or the DriveSavers Data Recovery website.
