When an unexpected disaster prevents your business from accessing crucial data on storage tapes, Secure Data Recovery Services provides a full set of effective solutions. We specialize in tape data recovery, and our engineers can effectively treat any cartridge regardless of its format, compression ratio or failure scenario.

Tape Data Recovery

Data tape failures can present a serious challenge for any business.

Tape formats like LTO, DLT and DDS allow for cost-effective archival backup, and businesses throughout Canada rely on tape cartridges to store email archives, databases and other critically important data. Unfortunately, no storage format provides perfect reliability, even when administrators perform regular tests to ensure consistency.

When you cannot access files on a digital storage tape, you need fast assistance from dedicated data tape repair professionals. Secure Data Recovery Services invests heavily in tape technology, and our laboratory is fully equipped for all media formats. By restoring damaged components and working directly with your data, our teams can restore important files to a fully working condition.

Choosing a Reliable Tape Data Recovery Provider

In order to recover data tapes, engineers need a working familiarity of various file systems and compression technologies. They also need to exercise extreme caution when handling recovered files, as most data tapes contain a large amount of personally identifiable information.

Tape Recovery

Our tape engineers have experience with all types of magnetic tapes including legacy formats.

Secure Data Recovery Services' engineers can treat both logical and physical tape issues in order to quickly restore your data. If your tapes have unspooled or if internal components have failed, we perform repairs in a certified Class 10 ISO 4 Cleanroom, which protects magnetic media from harmful contamination. As soon as we restore your tape to a working condition, we make a complete clone and safely perform additional file repair techniques by working directly from the copy.

Security is an important aspect of our services. As the first data recovery provider in Canada with a SSAE 18 SOC 2 Type II & SOC 3 certification, we give our clients full access to our security attestations. We also follow relevant guidelines and legal requirements when handling sensitive data in order to protect your confidentiality.

What to Do When a Data Storage Tape Fails

When you cannot read a tape, you should immediately eject it. Refrain from reading any other important cartridges before checking your tape drive for mechanical issues. Do not attempt to read, recover or repair your damaged data tapes. If your tape will not eject, unplug your tape drive from your computer to prevent further mechanical damage.

Choose a data recovery provider that has extensive experience with your tape format. Never open your cartridges for any reason, as this could contribute to permanent media read/write issues.

Secure Data Recovery Services can treat all tape failure scenarios including:

  • Damage from Oxidation and Poor Storage Conditions
  • Flipped or Broken Tape
  • Heat Damage
  • Accidental Deletion and Overwrites
  • File Corruption

We offer several different service levels for data tape recovery. Our 24/7/365 emergency service can restore your files in under a day under many circumstances, and our free diagnostics give you an effective way to control costs. All of our tape services feature the same high success rates, excellent security credentials and industry-leading customer service.

    Great group to work with

    I had a years-old LTO tape that we thought was still viable, but had no means to read. Another vendor wasted a month of my time only to ask me to buy the hardware so they could read it. I contacted Secure Data Recovery, and immediately wished I'd started here. Alec S was great to work with, and kept me in the loop all along the process. They completed when they said they would, and it cost what they said it would cost. I'm happy.
