Pick Data Recovery

Pick databases require specialized attention, and Secure Data Recovery Services has a qualified staff with years of relevant experience.

Pick is an operating system and database management package that was first introduced in the late 1960s. As a hash-file oriented DBMS (Database Management System), Pick is still popular for its fast data access speeds. Pick systems are closely associated with Linux, D3 and AIX, although Windows systems with Pick databases are not uncommon.

Historically, Pick has also been associated with IBM servers such as the RS series, 370 series and 9370 series. There are many variants and derivatives of Pick, including Rocket U2, Ultimate, Pyramid, Caché and Onware.

Common data loss scenarios for Pick systems include:

  • Damage to the dictionary level of the Pick system can prevent data access.
  • Hard disk errors, which the Pick system often indicates with error messages such as "Virtual ABS Not Valid" on older systems.
  • RAID misconfiguration or failure on newer systems.
  • Corruption on essential index files associated with some Pick variants.
  • User error, application error or operating system errors in an emulation environment that cause corruption.

Pick data file extensions vary depending on operating system. D3, for instance, uses extensions like .D3D and .D3T. Pick data files vary in basic structure and naming conventions, so in order to recover data from a damaged Pick system, you need to work with a qualified and experienced data recovery company.

Secure Data Recovery Services' Pick OS file repair experts can quickly recover data from any Pick system, including legacy servers. We use specialized proprietary software developed in our data recovery laboratories and use manual file repair techniques when necessary to fix underlying issues.

Whether you need to recover information from a mechanically damaged server or a corrupt database, Secure Data Recovery Services' teams can provide reliable results. Call us today to schedule risk-free diagnostics at one of our facilities.

What to Do When a Pick Database Fails

If you are having problems with a Pick system, write down any information that our engineers could use to diagnose the failure, including any error messages. Do not attempt to repair your storage media, especially RAID arrays and other complex systems; do not rebuild a damaged array if you notice any signs of physical media damage.

By keeping your system powered off, you will preserve your storage device in its original condition, greatly improving your chances of a full, successful recovery. If you cannot shut down your system, isolate your Pick databases by un-mounting the affected partition.
