Tape Data Recovery Service

There are very few data recovery service providers in India who have remarkable expertise in Tape Data Recovery. Techchef Data Recovery is one of those that takes pride in its state-of-the-art lab and experienced Tape Data Recovery engineers with rare skill and talent. They are capable of retrieving data from almost all available tape formats that include:-

  • AIT and AIST

  • Digital Audio Tape (DAT)
  • Quarter Inch Cartridge (QIC)
  • Ultrium Digital Linear Tape (DLT and SDLT)

Logical tape problems cover all read failures cause by accidental deletion or formatting, re-initialization, software hitches, or media errors. On the other hand, physical tape problems pertain to issues caused by wear and tear, tape drive failures, or damage by other external factors like fire or exposure to chemicals. Note that the functionality of tapes involve a complex mechanical process that could extend the damage on a unit if it is inserted in a drive. Regardless of whether you are experiencing a logical or a physical problem, we will help you troubleshoot it in the least amount of time possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, you have no other way of being able to access that data you have archived without the Tape reader. If you find yourself in this situation, clean your tape drive, they were engineered for heavy-duty work and durability, so with some luck, it may start to work again. If this fails to work, either look into buying a new or used drive of the same brand and model or bring the device to a specialist.

The most probable cause is the binder hydrolysis. This is a chemical breakdown of the tape, usually due to interaction with moisture in the air over a period of time. The result is a sticky residue on the surface of the tape. The problem occurs because the tape has been stored in an area that is too damp and too warm.

Recovery technique used on professional tapes can also be used on most consumer formats. However, some techniques do not work as well on miniaturized tapes. If your tapes are easily replaced store-bought copies, it is often less expensive to replace the tapes than to pay for professional restoration.

Wet tapes often require decontamination. Improper drying cause tapes to deform, break, stick together and may increase chemical decay. Get you wet tapes to a restoration specialist fast.
