Brick Level Tape Data Recovery

Secure Data Recovery Services offers brick-level tape repair and recovery services to help your business recover from any data loss disaster.

Brick-Level Tape Data Recovery

Brick-level backups provide several advantages over other backup strategies, but data loss can still cause major issues.

Brick-level backups remove one of the major disadvantages of full backups; localized file corruption will not invalidate an entire backup, as individual files are still accessible. In many cases, users can read portions of a data file, and brick-level backups provide reliable results as part of a long-term disaster recovery strategy.

However, the brick-level strategy creates a significant draw on storage resources, since each file is backed up individually. Many companies re-use data tapes in order to manage costs. This significantly raises the chances of media damage and data loss.

Some of the most common failure scenarios for tape backups include:

  • Media Wear and Oxide Loss
  • Tape Tears, Folds and Other Physical Damage
  • Localized File Corruption
  • Accidental Overwrites and Other User Error
  • Software Error
  • Fire and Water Damage

What to Do When a Brick-Level Tape Backup Fails

If you have a damaged or corrupt brick-level backup, you need to take immediate steps to limit damage. Do not operate a damaged cartridge or tape drive for any reason. Never run corruption utilities or make any attempt to repair your tapes.

For the best possible results, you should place your tapes in a safe location until you can contact a professional data recovery provider. Make a note of any symptoms that preceded your failure. If your files corrupt or unreadable, write down any error messages before turning your tape drive off.

At Secure Data Recovery Services, we offer free diagnostics for all data tape formats. Our specialists will complete several tests in a safe environment to determine the extent of overwrites and corruption. We provide a price quote and turnaround estimate before performing any repairs, and because we keep a large inventory of tape drives and components onsite, we can provide quick results for your business.
