Tape Data Recovery

Data tapes need fast treatment in an appropriate environment, and Secure Data Recovery Services offers dependable results.

Many businesses incorporate tape-based backups as part of a long-term archiving and disaster recovery strategy. Data tapes need fast treatment in an appropriate environment, and Secure Data Recovery Services offers dependable results. Over time, tape formats evolve, but many businesses keep legacy libraries for compliance or to keep restore points of mailboxes, databases and other important files.

Although digital data tapes provide relatively reliable storage, any legacy device can gradually break down due to environmental factors and natural media decay. Software errors can also cause file loss, leaving businesses without access to essential data.

What to Do When a Legacy Backup Fails

Tape libraries can become inaccessible for a number of reasons. Our engineers perform several tests at the outset of each case to create an appropriate recovery strategy, and we offer risk-free evaluation reports for all standard legacy backup data recovery clients. Each evaluation report contains a price quote and turnaround estimate.

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

  • Oxide Loss and Storage-Related Damage
  • Flipped, Torn or Broken Tape
  • Damage from Malfunctioning Tape Drives
  • Software Errors and File Corruption
  • Accidental Deletion and Overwrites

Legacy tape libraries are particularly susceptible to oxide loss and other storage issues, dependent on the storage environment and the tape format. When tape backups fail, businesses need to take appropriate steps to prevent accidental contamination and other potential sources of media damage.

Never attempt to read a visibly damaged data cartridge. Keep your tapes in a dust-free environment; control heat and humidity to prevent oxide loss from causing additional media damage. Do not attempt to copy data from a damaged tape under any circumstances.

For the best chances of a successful, full recovery, contact a qualified data recovery company as soon as possible to set up a media evaluation.
