IBM Tape Data Recovery

As IBM tape recovery specialists, we offer exceptional options for every data tape format.

IBM manufactures several different types of tapes including LTO, 3592, 4mm, RDX and a number of legacy formats. While IBM tapes are extremely dependable when used and stored correctly, all digital storage media are susceptible to data loss under certain conditions.

Some of the most common failure scenarios for IBM tapes include:

  • Damage from Oxide Loss or Poor Storage Conditions

What to Do When an IBM Data Tape Fails

Never take risks with damaged IBM storage tapes. Do not attempt to read inaccessible cartridges, especially if you notice torn tape or any other signs of damage. Your tape drive may cause additional issues that could significantly lower your chances of a successful recovery.

Make a note of any symptoms that preceded the tape failure including error messages. Shut your system down as soon as possible or disconnect your tape drive to prevent further damage. Store your tapes in a safe, dry environment and contact a professional data recovery provider.
