Causes of Tape Failure and Data Loss

Corruption: operational error, expired tapes, mishandling of the tape or accidental overwrites caused by inserting or partially formatting the wrong tape
Physical damage: broken tapes, dirty drives and damage caused by fire, flood or other natural disaster
Software upgrades: inability for data on tape to be read by new application or servers

Tape Recovery Process:

Data recovery for tape media is much more than simply replacing parts. At East African Data Handlers , has been building and improving upon cutting-edge tape recovery tools and data recovery processes.

Tape recoveries are performed in dust-free clean room environments
Tapes and tape drives are carefully dismounted, examined and processed
When there is physical media damage, proprietary tools can read around the damaged area to recover your tape data successfully
Tapes are imaged in order to quickly obtain a copy of the data from the failing tape, ensuring the most complete data recovery is possible and recovered data is transferred to the new system

What to Avoid:

Note: Attempting to recover tape data on your own, or through an inexperienced data recovery provider, may lead to further damage. Select a data recovery provider with the resources, expertise and experience you can trust.
