Tape Data Recovery
It is a common practice to back up systems to tape drives. They are fast, convenient and are high capacity. However, tapes can fail for the same
reasons as other magnetic media. Data Recovery Services has recovered tapes that have become corrupt due to many situations.
- Physical damage
- Back up Failures
- Water damaged tapes
- Overwritten Tapes
- Smoke or Chemical Damaged Tapes
- Intentionally damaged tapes
- Broken Tapes
DRS has developed its own tape data recovery software
in its research and development lab to access more data off of tapes than ever before. Our in-house programmers
are constantly upgrading and generating new recovery software to help better serve you. Our engineers are trained in recovery from many tape formats
- 4mm DAT, DDS, DDS2, DDS3, DDS4 and DDS5
- Super DLT & DLT, DLT VS80 and VS160 tapes
- Exabyte 8mm
- SONY AIT 1, 2 and 3
- Travan tapes
- QIC mini cartridge tapes
- 9-track tape recovery and conversion
- OnStream ADR 30 and 50 GB
- LTO 1, 2, 3 and 4
- VXA 1 and 2
- Mammoth 1 and 2
- SLR 1, 2, 3 ,4, 5
DRS will thoroughly examine your tape for any kind of damage, whether it is physical or logical, before any attempt is made to recover the data.
Our first concern is to secure a copy of your data to the fullest extent possible; this can be achieved by performing a low-level read of your tape.
We will then work from a secure copy of your data to identify the format and determine what process will be used to complete the recovery.
After determining what steps will be necessary to complete your tape data recovery
, we will contact you. No work will be done without your approval. As soon as you approve the recovery, our engineers will continue with the recovery effort.
We recover data from many tape formats made by but not limited to the following manufacturers:
