Most Common Media Types

Book Recovery

Document Reprocessors' exclusive Thermaline® drying process is particularly effective for successful recovery of wet books and paper documents.


Film separation and drying must commence within 48 hours of becoming wet to achieve the best results.

Magnetic Media

Water-damaged media to be considered for recovery include 3-1/2``, 5-1/4``, and 8`` diskettes, PC hard drives, magnetic tape, data cassettes, and other types of magnetic storage.


20th century black-and-white photographic and contemporary color materials require immediate attention. 

Maps and Prints

Maps, blueprints and architectural drawings pose special salvage challenges. Time is critical and it is very important to ensure that all possible steps are taken.

Audio | Visual Tapes

Sealed magnetic tape media, such as audio and video tapes, require a rapid, specific response to minimize loss of data.
