Data Loss Symptoms for Sony Tape Storage Media

Sony storage media can fail for a number of reasons, and failure symptoms will vary depending on media format and the backup application used to access data. Physical symptoms such as sticking tape, folding tape or physical tears are especially serious, but in many cases, a tape drive will report read/write errors without giving any indication as to the cause of data loss.

To improve your chances of a successful recovery, you should immediately eject damaged tape cartridges and store them in a safe location. Do not attempt to repair damaged components.

Some of the most common causes of data loss on Sony storage media include:

  • Tape Decay Due to Improper Storage Conditions
  • Oxide Loss
  • Tape Tears, Breaks and Folds
  • Permanent Fatal Errors Residing Mid
  • Damage Caused by Malfunctioning Tape Drive
  • Media Contamination
  • Fire, Smoke or Flood Damage
