Cracked CD recovery
The CD sent to us today was cracked from the inside ring, stopping about 2 cm short of the outer edge. It had been to a few other companies and high street stores to get the photos off it without success. On our scanner we set the read offset to just concentrate on the outer edge (nothing can be done for the area with crack on it). We got back all the photos in this area of the disk to the relief of the owner.
Merging two bad files for one good one
There was an old accounting program on a 5.25 floppy disk arrived at our offices. The disk had a few bad sectors, one of which was in the middle of the program file. Fortunately we located another copy of the program in the USA. But it too had bad sectors. Fortunately its bad sectors were different to the original disk, so we merged the two files good sectors to produce a good copy of the program. Worked perfectly.
Floppy Disk Formatted
Interesting job today. The floppy disk had been used to keep a diary on and contained many hours of work. The disk was re-formatted and file names wiped out along with FAT file cluster allocation table. However we managed to recover the text and saved it chunks from each sector, so that it could be manually joined by the author.

Sun Com Squared MO disks, 30 Sony M.O. Disk 1.3GB disks - need converted to DVD, said the email last month from USA. The disks were from a Sun UNIX imaging system.

Apex found the disks were created by Com Squared Systems. The Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) stored the files on Optical disks. Apex can now recover these to say TIF, PDF or other formats..

Apple ][ Disks Recovery., Apple ][ (Apple 2 se II) floppy disks were typically 5.25 inch. In the 1980s you would have had one of these in your office for word processing / spreadsheets, or your school may have had one Apple and some BBC Micros, but the Apple computer was always the one you wanted to use, with its imposing twin floppy drives mounted under the green monitor and its colourful logo. We are excited to offer a recovery service extract the files and convert them to a more modern format for use in Mac or Windows PC. The files can be converted to excel or Microsoft Word. Typically the disks were Single Sided Double Density 140k(140kb).
