Data Format Conversion

Many companies are finding it difficult these days to access their old records and archives which have suddenly become essential for their successful continued business operations. At Data Recovery Specialist Limited (DRSL), we can migrate your data from the old technology to the new technology within a wide range of data storage media and formats.

Convert UNIX storage formats to Windows NT formats
In concert with our international offices, DRSL has surpassed our competitors with the development of cutting edge proprietary conversion tools that will convert UNIX archives into PC formats. We are equally abreast of the changing and emerging technologies, hence we are keeping pace with the realities for our customers to remain in business.

Convert EBCDIC and other formats to ASCII
In some instances, data transferred to another system may become unusable. For example, IBM Mainframe EBCDIC data encoded formats are not compatible with UNIX or PC systems, making data exchanges within the systems impossible. Transferring EBCDIC fixed length records or binary records to a PC workstation has high a tendency for a system crash. DRSL has solved these incompatibility challenges, and can effortlessly migrate your data from the old environment to the new one.

Convert COBOL to ASCII
We can translate your old COBOL record descriptions to ASCII. We can also convert your COPY or SAVE format data into delimited ASCII with printable numeric fields, which can be loaded into most PC or UNIX applications.
