Super DLT Tape Data Recovery

We can safely treat any Super DLT failure scenario including data corruption and physical cartridge damage.

The Super DLT was Quantum's answer to the rising demand for high-capacity, high-speed data tape formats. Before the company switched its attention to the LTO, the SDLT, SDLT2 and DLT-S4 gained popularity with hundreds of businesses and were seen as a competitor for the LTO family of super tapes.

Because SDLT drives used the Ultra-2-Wide SCSI interface, data transfer speeds were significantly higher. The SDLT 220 allowed transfers of up to 11 megabytes per second, while the 320 increased rates to a maximum of 16 megabytes per second.

At Secure Data Recovery Services, we specialize in data tape repair. We have experience with all Super DLT Data Recovery formats, including:

  • DLT8000
  • DLT7000
  • DLT II
  • DLT IV
  • DAT
  • DDS
  • TK50
  • TK70
  • QIC
  • VS80
  • VS160

Unfortunately, businesses rarely store tapes in perfect environments, and Super DLT media can degrade due to excessive humidity, exposure to sunlight or extreme temperatures. As is the case with any mechanically driven media, SDLT tapes can also suffer from impact damage, z-folds, physical tape breaks and other issues.

Regardless of your media failure scenario, our engineers can develop an effective plan for a successful recovery. Secure Data Recovery Services operates more than 40 offices across the United States, and we offer free diagnostics for all of our DLT tape recovery clients. Contact us today to get started.

Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom SDLT Tape Data Recovery

Like other cartridges in the Digital Linear Tape family, Super DLT tapes offer a long storage life and dependable operation. When stored in a cool, dark place with controlled humidity, SDLT can retain data for more than 30 years. However, SDLT tapes are extremely sensitive to contamination, and improper storage conditions can accelerate media decay. Contamination can also complicate the data recovery process.

In order to repair physical media issues, data recovery engineers need to work in a clean, controlled environment. You should not attempt to repair damaged Super DLT media, as you might accidentally contribute to media damage. If you notice any unusual mechanical sounds coming from your SDLT drive or if your drive returns error codes that indicate media read/write failures, shut down your tape drive immediately and do not attempt to use it to access any other cartridges. Contact a professional data recovery company as soon as possible.

Secure Data Recovery Services is one of the only S-DLT tape data recovery companies with a Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, which provides protection during mechanical repairs. We also utilize advanced proprietary tools to ensure the highest possible success rates.
