DLT IV Tape Data Recovery

Always work with a certified data recovery company to ensure safe, reliable treatment.

The DLT IV was one of Quantum's most popular proprietary formats, capable of storing 20-40 gigabytes of uncompressed data. Like its predecessors, the DLT IV is WORM capable and uses hardware-based compression. Many businesses still use DLT tapes for archival storage, as the tapes offer exceptional durability and dependability under proper storage conditions. The expected storage life of DLT IV media averages around 30 years.

Some of the most common causes of data loss for DLT IV cartridges include:

  • Media Decay from Improper Storage Conditions
  • Fire, Flood, Smoke or Heat Damage
  • Moisture Damage and Humidity Damage
  • Physical Impact or Drop Damage
  • Z-Folds and Data Spooling
  • Mechanical Tape Component Malfunction
  • Permanent Mid-file Errors
  • Accidental Deletion or Overwrite

With years of experience with DLT IV media, Secure Data Recovery Services can fully recover most tapes within several days, regardless of the extent of media damage. We start each case with a free, no-risk media analysis to present you with a firm price quote and turnaround estimate, and we also offer a full no recovery, no charge guarantee with every case.

What to Do When a DLT IV Cartridge Fails

DLT IV cartridges are especially susceptible to media contamination, and you should never expose your tape to untreated air. To avoid accidental damage, shut down your tape drive as soon as you notice unusual noises, read/write errors or other symptoms of data loss. Do not attempt to re-spool, reload or repair your tape.
