With years of experience and detailed knowledge of many different tape drives and tape backup formats including the variety of backup software in use today, we can provide you with expert tape recovery solutions for all your low and high capacity tape media, made by all the major tape manufacturers.
With advanced solutions for disk recovery, RAID recovery and tape data recovery, DiskEng services are considered as a lifeline by many IT managers and computer service companies in the IT industry. We provide full support for common backup tape formats and backup tape failures and have developed in house, bespoke tape recovery software and tape recovery hardware solutions, that enable us to retrieve tape data from the majority of different backup tapes and backup failures that can cause unexpected data corruption and data loss.
We know the risks involved in storing data to a single source and that tape data backup is still the most common alternative for business critical data file archive and data management. Despite the reliability of many different brands of tapes and data backup formats in use, some tapes still fail with common problems. Over the years we have recovered data from many tapes and backup software failures that have caused unexpected data loss.
Typical tape failures include damaged or snapped tape media to overwritten or initialised tapes. We fully support the majority of high end tapes, DDS DAT AIT DLT SDLT LTO VXA and others. We can retrieve data from popular backup formats including Windows 2000, MTF (Microsoft Tape Format), Arcserve, Backup Exec and many more. DiskEng is proud of the high success rate achieved in tape recovery from low and high capacity storage tapes.
Tape Data Recovery
Tape recovery is the process of salvaging data from an inaccessible storage tape. Whether the cause is an untimely physical tape failure, normally caused by media flaws and loss of media alignment or a logical tape failure caused by internal data corruption and damaged catalogue data or an application related backup software failure which commonly fails to restore data. What ever the cause of data loss, our Data Recovery Process ensures maximum recovery of all recoverable data from the majority of these common tape problems.
Because of the sensitivity of data, we only perform tape recovery in secure laboratory conditions under strict access control, with the entire tape data recovery process carried out by senior data recovery specialist engineers experienced in both hardware tape recovery and software tape recovery solutions.
Through years of experience, we know that sometimes there is only a limited chance to retrieve data from some tape media. This could be because the tape is suffering from wide spread media flaws or tape media degradation and requires hardware tape recovery or that this is the only data backup of your business critical data files.
For these reasons and to maintain data integrity we only perform tape data recovery on a duplicate copy of the original tape, this is known as the tape mirror image. The stored data files are directly extracted from the raw data copy using advanced software tape recovery tools, bypassing any media flaws or damaged tape catalogues and corrupt tape headers which are common problems that can cause corruption and data loss in most tapes.
Backup tapes are in most cases the last place for any stored data, so why take risks. As the UK recognised data recovery service provider, we can achieve maximum recovery of any recoverable data from both your hard disks and your critical backup tapes.
