VS80 Tape Data Recovery

Our teams can safely treat any Digital Linear Tape regardless of format or failure scenario.

The VS80 is Quantum's last DLTIV tape drive, offering a tape capacity of 40 gigabytes and data transfer rates as high as 8 megabytes per second. Like other DLT drives, it is extremely reliable; the VS-80 drive has a 200,000-hour mean time before failure (MTBF) rating.DLT IV media was designed for dependable data backup, and the VS80 offers a tremendous return on investment for businesses with demanding data storage systems.

As is the case with any digital tape-based storage device, however, data loss can occur with VS80 media. DLT IV tapes can retain data for 30 years in perfect storage conditions, but high humidity, exposure to sunlight and high temperatures can accelerate oxide loss and tape decay.

Other causes of data loss on VS80 media include:

  • Impact-Related Physical Damage
  • Tape Tears, Breaks, Folds and Stretching
  • Unspooling or Broken Spooling Components
  • Damage Caused by Malfunctioning VS80 Drive
  • Damage from Smoke, Fire, Water or Humidity
  • Overwrites and Tape Deletion
