Do you need to migrate files to a new system or format?
Our service can help with these problems.
Often, access to proper computer software and "device drivers" is the problem. There are times when the computational environment can be restored "sufficiently" to drag off data.
The Bottom Line Much of the time, our work aides in making data more accessible. Depending of the peripherals, we can drag information off the old device and put in on a CD. We have an old '486 with both 3½ & 5¼ drives & SyQuest & Iomega drives. With 7/9 track tape, we can read data blocks, identify bad blocks, tapes with bad CRC's, etc. and place good stuff on a disk... ZIPped & TARed.
Software is a different story. Outside of Microsoft formats, it is really hit or miss that someone has the application required. Printergy probably does not!
Tape conversion software is in a unique position that bit & bytes are generally readable and convertible to ASCII / EBCDIC /...what ever.
Please review our legacy equipment list for maintained equipment. If we do not have the correct equipment, we will search and attempt to find the equipment. Sometimes we are fortunate others times, we are not so lucky in equipment hunting.
IBM Punch Card -- Herman Hollerith's Format
Lately, Printergy was asked if it could translate codes punched into "IBM Punch" cards. Right! We can tell what character is punched but it is up to you to figure out what it means!
