Data recovery operations are a meticulous process, and recovering data from tapes is no exception. Tape data recovery basically involves two types of recovery, physical and logical.
Physical tape data recovery is necessary when there is a material problem with the iron oxides or plastic polymers which prevent the data from being read normally. This type of recovery may include dealing with issues such as decomposing magnetic coatings, cracked or broken reels/cartridges, broken/stretched/creased/twisted/folded tape, etc. While these physical issues are challenging to deal with, recovery from these types of cases can typically be achieved 100% of the time.
Logical tape data recovery proves more intricate, hence costlier. Carry out logical recovery entails recovering the data portion of a tape that was successfully recorded, and now unreadable. The recovery of these files often requires multiple passes, using proprietary software to restore the file. The file fragments are pieced back together, while the logically restructured file is written out to the appropriate output device.
Other forms of logical tape data recovery include tapes that were written with misaligned heads, and tapes that were mistakenly reinitialized. Each can be recovered, at least partially, using our exclusive software and procedures. With data recovery, you often only get one chance to do it right – therefore leave nothing to chance, contacting SalvageData. Our in-house recovery service necessitates the shipping of your malfunctioning tapes to our location for our technicians and engineers to assess and determine the necessary steps to recover the data.
