Finding a Qualified 9840 Tape Data Recovery Provider

Secure Data Recovery Services offers a comprehensive set of professional 9840 cartridge data recovery services. We have the technology and the experience to treat virtually any data loss scenario, restoring your essential backups and preventing unnecessary downtime after a media disaster.

9840 Tape Data Recovery

In order to treat 9840 tapes as efficiently as possible, we keep an inventory of functional tape drives onsite.

Although 9840 tape drives have a fairly low capacity compared to other storage media, they offer extremely fast data access speeds thanks to a unique design and specialized cartridge components. The StorageTek 9840 series competed with the LTO format, and its fast transfer speeds allowed many businesses to create effective backup systems for small to medium-sized computer systems.

The metal particle formulation of 9840 tape allows for an archival life of 15-30 years depending on storage conditions. However, many StorageTek drive owners do not keep 9840 tapes in optimal storage environments, which can lead to serious gaps in your tape library.

Some of the most common tape failure scenarios for the 9840 series include:

  • Water and Humidity Damage
  • Fire and Smoke Damage
  • Permanent Mid-File Errors and Data Corruption
  • Tape Snaps, Breaks, Tears and Folds
  • Damage from Malfunctioning 9840 Tape Drive
  • Accidental Overwrites
  • Storage-Related Oxide Loss and More

Secure Data Recovery Services offers data recovery for all StorageTek tapes including the 9840 series. Our engineers have experience with all backup applications, tapes and tape drives, and we can fully recover most media in a matter of days.

We offer data recovery through many offices across the United States, and unlike many of our competitors, we offer no-risk evaluations for all 9840 media. Each evaluation includes a diagnostics report, a turnaround time estimate and a price quote. Contact our customer service team today to get started or for more information.

The Industry's Most Advanced 9840 Tape Data Recovery Technology

In order to successfully repair damaged 9840 tape cartridges, data recovery engineers need to have a working knowledge of both the mechanical design and the logical architecture of StorageTek media. Experienced engineering teams can typically recover backup tapes very quickly, but many repair procedures are extremely specialized. A simple mistake can lead to permanent tape damage, greatly diminishing the chances of a full recovery.

Secure Data Recovery Services specializes in backup tape recovery. Our engineers have expensive experience with common applications such as NetBackup and StorageTek's tape software, and we are uniquely qualified to treat logical issues on 9840 media. This includes data corruption, accidental formatting, and the file issues that often accompany physical media issues.

We also invest in our laboratory in order to deliver the best possible results. Secure Data Recovery Services has a number of proprietary tools designed for StorageTek systems, and we maintain an exceptional overall success rate of 96 percent.

What to Do When a 9840 Tape Cartridge Fails

Like many storage media, the StorageTek 9840 tape cartridge uses sensitive components. Minor contaminants can prevent read/write heads from accessing data, and engineers need to take exceptional care to maintain a completely sterile environment when recovering data from the 9840 series.

In order to avoid accidental damage, you should never attempt to manually repair a 9840 tape. Keep your tape drive powered off and contact a certified data recovery provider as soon as you notice signs of media damage. Secure Data Recovery Services' engineers treat every physically damaged tape in a Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, which prevents contaminants from damaging data tape and other sensitive media components.

We are one of the only data recovery companies with the technology to safely perform 9840 tape data recovery procedures, and we follow established security protocols to protect our clients' confidentiality throughout the case process.
