  • 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. The dedicated R&D staff at East African Data Handlers Data Recovery has 20 years experience in building cutting edge tape recovery tools and data recovery processes.

  • Tape recoveries are performed in dust-free cleanroom environments
  • Tapes and tape drives are carefully dismounted, examined and processed
  • Proprietary tools "force" the drive to read around the bad area to recover your tape data successfully
  • Tapes are imaged, a copy of the disk is created, and recovered data is transferred to the new system

NOTICE: 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 resources, expertise and experience you can trust.
