Jaz Disk Data Recovery



Introduced in 1995, Jaz drives & disks use a hard-platter media (similar to what is used in hard drives) in a small, portable disk to offer a compact, high-capacity (up to 2GB) backup option.

Because they were designed to be portable, Jaz disks – like other removable disks – are unfortunately exposed to an increased chance of data loss. Physical damage, dust & media contamination, magnetic fields and more can cause the highly-precise media in Jaz disks to become unreadable or lose files when they are not protected from these threats.

If you have lost data, inaccessible files, or backups that won't restore on your Jaz disks, we can help restore your files!

Call a data recovery expert today and we'll help restore not only your files, but your peace of mind.
