It is not too long ago that law-enforcement, forensic accountants, lawyers or liquidators would have to make room in their workspace for many filing cabinets of documents seized as part of their investigation.

Although the "paperless-office" remains just a concept for most, the real volume of data in modern times is going to be held on electronic media.

This will sometimes be on a properly managed IT system with a well managed back-up or archive regime, but often the data that is sought is on a collection of different tape formats that have been in use over the years.

Aardvark maintains a collection of hardware enabling it to read data from many different disk and tape formats. Using powerful search and indexing tools, we are able to locate data long thought of as destroyed or irretrievable.

We are regularly instructed via various orders from the High Court in relation to such work.
