LTO-5 Tape Data Recovery

Our flexible service options help you quickly regain access to your LTO-5 media.

Introduced in 2010, the fifth generation of the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Ultrium format provided an increased native capacity of 1.5 terabytes. With data transfer speeds of 140 megabytes per second and support for encryption, the LTO-5 met the needs of many enterprise-level system administrators by providing a safe, fast and secure option for archival data storage.

While LTO-5 is an advanced format with a number of built-in mechanisms to protect against data loss, all magnetic media can lose information over time. When stored in an improper environment, an LTO-5 may lose oxide at a higher-than-average rate. Physical tape cartridge components can also take damage due to humidity, fire, smoke or flooding.

Common failure symptoms for LTO-5 tape drives include:

  • Unusual Sounds and Error Messages
  • Deformed or Unspooled Tape
  • File Corruption
  • Drive Cooling Problems Resulting in Tape Deformations
  • Multiple SCD Codes Indicating Unreadable Tape

Regardless of your tape failure scenario, you need fast help from a qualified data recovery company in order to control system downtime. Secure Data Recovery Services offers the best LTO-5 data recovery options available, and our tape media evaluations can provide you with a risk-free turnaround time and price estimate. We offer 24/7/365 emergency tape recovery services through our network of offices across the United States.

Factors That Affect LTO-5 Tape Data Recovery

LTO Ultrium media require specialized tools and a case-specific approach. The LTO-5 was the first generation of Linear Tape-Open Ultrium to support partitioning, and data recovery engineers need to use appropriate procedures on partitioned cartridges for the best possible chances of a successful case result. Likewise, encryption can significantly affect the difficulty of a particular case. Ideally, data recovery engineers should have experience with all popular data backup programs, RDBMS applications and modern encryption algorithms.

What to Do When an LTO-5 Tape Cartridge Fails
