Microsoft Backup Tape Data Recovery

We are proud to offer a flexible set of data recovery services for Microsoft Backup tape cartridges.

The Windows Server Backup utility replaced NTBackup in Windows Server 2008, providing a similar feature set but with a move away from tape-based backup support. Many businesses use older Microsoft backup utilities to create archives to data tape formats such as LTO, S-AIT, S-DLT, DAT and DDS, and Windows' support for various levels of encryption allow for secure, relatively reliable tape archives.

Unfortunately, tape failures are possible with any system. System administrators rarely note tape failures before attempting to restore from a backup, and data loss often carries costly consequences. On Windows Server systems, data tape cartridges can lose data due to logical issues such as corruption and accidental deletion or due to physical damage. Tape drives often present error messages indicating failed, unreadable or non-present media.

Some common types of data loss for Windows tape backups include:

  • Oxide Loss and Storage-Related Media Decay Issues
  • Smoke Damage and Media Contamination
  • Humidity and Moisture Damage
  • Flipped, Broken or Stretched Tape
  • Tape Header Issues
  • Corruption and Permanent Mid-File Errors
  • Accidental Media Overwrites and Deletion
  • Impact Damage and Physical Cartridge Component Damage
  • Spooling Issues
