Tape Amalgamation

It’s a common problem that all companies that have backed up or archived many tapes over many years may have. Unidentified tapes that cannot be destroyed, or specific backup sessions that can be destroyed but cannot be selectively isolated. Now you can do either or both with TRACS

SullivanStrickler Tape and Data Restoration

Tape and Data Restoration 

 There are two fundamental approaches to restore any level of data from backed up media. We call them “native” & “non-native.”

Native means that when a piece of media is to be explored the approach would be to replicate the environment on which the data was originally backed up. This means the operating system, backup software and general software and hardware configuration; this is “native” restoration.

Another approach is to effectively trick the media into thinking it is being restored by a native replication of the backup environment where it is not; this is “non-native” restoration.


Data Recovery

When you assemble a group of engineering talent that understand files at the HEX level, understand BITs and BYTES at the magnetic flux transition level, understand recording technology of disk, tape and flash, understand computer operations that take place in the registry, understand backup operational processes in all the major backup software applications of the last thirty years, then you have a team of talented staff capable of recovering corrupt or unreadable data into a meaningful or original form. Whether it be old decaying tapes, environmentally damaged media, dropped hard drives or even corrupted VHD’s (Virtual Hard Drives) in a RAID we have had significant success. If the data is critical and you can no longer read or restore it, give it to us. We will guide you on how to avoid further risk to the media and quickly determine the best course of action.

Restoration as Managed Services

Companies that have data created in legacy systems that no longer create new data need not be paying for them, or struggling to maintain them. Our options remove cost, enable the removal of all infrastructure, and speed up time to data. There’s no downside. Discuss with us the best way to proceed with retiring legacy backup systems. Depending upon the systems and data availability requirements this may be to

  • Have SullivanStrickler take over the environment and bring it into our HAV (High Availability Vault).
  • Virtualize the environment.
  • Extract backup software databases and import metadata into Invenire.
  • Scan backup tapes to extract targeted file level metadata and import to Invenire.

Forensics & Collection Services

SullivanStrickler has certified, forensic experts who manage every facet of forensic data recovery. Identification, acquisition, preservation, analysis, and documentation of electronically stored data are coordinated for your use.

Our forensic experts increase the efficiency and accuracy of the digital forensic investigation process, without altering or compromising fragile digital information and risking defensibility.

Holding a variety of certifications, including CCE, CHFI, and EnCE, the SullivanStrickler’s team can perform onsite or remote collections globally.

SullivanStrickler eDiscovery


While most of SullivanStrickler’s solution set focuses on the mid to left side of the EDRM (Electronic Discovery Reference Model), namely Information Governance, Identification, Preservation and Collection, we also have the capabilities to take all of that data and run it though the Processing, Review, Analysis and Production portion of the model. Using industry workhorse tools such as Nuix along with in-house developed LEAR, for ECA (Early Case Assessment) that can both feed into Relativity, SullivanStrickler can handle just about all of your eDiscovery needs across the entire spectrum. Our dedicated Project Managers work hand in hand with your team to come up with the most efficient workflow whether you are dealing with a few Megabytes of information all the way up to multiple Terabytes.
