TK70 Tape Data Recovery

Secure Data Recovery Services is one of the only companies capable of repairing physically damaged TK70 storage media.

The TK70 was a tape drive that read and wrote to CompacTape II media, a cartridge format popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Capable of holding a native 0.3 gigabytes of data, the CompacTape II was an effective tool for data backup and archival storage. TK70 drives offered a significant upgrade from earlier drives like the TK50.

A TK70 can read and write information at 0.045 megabytes per second, and CompacTape II media can store data for several decades before tape components degrade and oxidize. However, businesses rarely store CompacTape II cartridges in perfect conditions. Excessive sunlight and humidity or high temperatures can accelerate oxidation, causing tape components to break down early. When a TK70 cartridge becomes unreadable, you need fast help from a professional data tape repair team.

Safely Treating TK70 Tape Drives and Media

Many data recovery companies refuse to work with TK70 media due to the age of the tapes and the relatively high chances of oxide loss, stiction and other complex physical media issues. Working T70 drives are also relatively uncommon, and data recovery engineers need to fully understand the hardware in order to develop effective treatment plans for drive issues.

At Secure Data Recovery Services, we specialize in tape data recovery. Our engineers have decades of combined experience with TK70 drives and CompacTape II media, and we use state-of-the-art technology to deliver excellent results in every case that we handle.

Our teams can treat all failure scenarios including:

  • Torn, Twisted, Flipped or Broken Tape
  • Damage Due to Oxidation and Storage Issues
  • Accidental Overwrites and Reformatting
  • Broken Tape Cartridge Components
  • Impact Damage
  • Fire, Smoke and Water Damage

Secure Data Recovery Services is also one of the only TK70 tape data recovery companies in the United States to use a Certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom when performing physical repairs, and we keep a large inventory of functioning TK50/TK70 drives to deliver consistent results for all CompacTape formats. When you send your media to our facilities, you always get excellent treatment from certified tape experts.

What to Do When TK70 Media Fails

If you cannot access data on a TK70 drive, you should make a list of error symptoms and turn the drive off as soon as possible. A broken TK70 could potentially damage CompacTape II media or vice-versa, greatly limiting your chances of a successful case result. You should never attempt to repair cartridge components under any circumstances.

TK70 data recovery is highly specialized, and we need to carefully examine every CompacTape II cartridge before estimating turnaround time and recovery costs. We offer free, no-risk diagnostics to give our clients an easy way to evaluate recovery costs.

Secure Data Recovery Services provides several turnaround levels to customize the data recovery process for our clients, and our 24/7/365 emergency service is an excellent option if you need to minimize system downtime. All of our service options feature SSAE 16 Type II certified security, and with state-of-the-art technology, we are proud to provide guaranteed results for our clients. If we cannot successfully recover your tapes, you will not pay a service charge. To set up free media diagnostics, call our customer service team today.
