SLR Tape Data Recovery

At Secure Data Recovery Services, we offer exceptional success rates and fast turnarounds for every SLR tape format.

Partially based on QIC storage media technology, SLR (Scalable Linear Recording) is Tandberg Data's scalable format. Through more than a dozen generations, SLR has gained popularity for its small form factor, fast data transfer speeds and relatively large capacity as compared to other 1/4-inch and 8mm tapes.

While Tandberg Data produces high-quality, reliable storage media, SLR media can fail under some circumstances. Unlike other data tapes, SLR media maintains integrity in a fairly wide range of storage conditions, but high humidity levels and extreme temperatures can accelerate natural tape decay. This can lead to read/write issues. In extreme cases, malfunctioning tape drives can physically damage SLR cartridges, and users can accidentally delete or overwrite important data.

Secure Data Recovery Services offers SLR data recovery for all formats, including:

  • SLR1, SLR2, SLR 3, SLR 4 and SLR 4-DC and SLR 5
  • SLR6 and SLR24
  • MLR1 and MLR3
  • SLR32 and SLR50
  • SLR40, SLR7, SLR60 and SLR75
  • SLR100 and SLR140

We lead the industry in SLR tape data services, and with a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, advanced security systems and proprietary technology, Secure Data Recovery Services is an excellent choice for reliable data tape repair. Call us today to schedule a free evaluation at one of our facilities.

State-of-the-Art SLR Data Recovery Technology

SLR tape drives provide consistently reliable operation. However, drives may report errors when the read/write heads become damaged or if the SLR cartridge has permanent issues.

Error codes vary from one tape drive to the next. SLR 140 tape drives will often indicate whether the read error is in the tape drive or the tape, but in order to accurately analyze the cause of data loss, you should have a professional data recovery engineer evaluate unreadable cartridges.

What to Do When a SLR Tape Drive Fails

8mm and 1/4-inch tapes are extremely sensitive, and data recovery engineers need to take exceptional care to prevent fingerprint residue, dust and other contaminants from touching delicate data tape. Our certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom provides essential protection during repairs; you should never attempt to treat your own SLR cartridges, as you might accidentally contribute to media damage.

As soon as you notice that you cannot read a SLR cartridge, eject it from your tape drive and store it in a safe location. Do not run data recovery utilities. Contact our team to discuss your options.
