Recovery Services for All Tape Formats

A tape cartridge, also called a data cartridge, is a storage system that holds a spool of magnetic tape. The magnetic tape stores different kinds of data, from corporate business data to audio and video files. The cartridges of tapes are designed to fit into a computer system or audio/video recorder system.

Tape media cartridges are widely used in a corporate environment. They play an essential role in lots of businesses’ backup systems. These devices come in different formats of the tapes, including LTO, DLT, and S-AIT. These formats have advanced storage capabilities. Modern tape cartridges can hold even 15 terabytes of data.


DLT Tape Recovery

Most of the digital data tapes can keep your critical data safely for more than 30 years. Standard HDDs, SSDs, and RAID arrays can be prone to failure. Tapes usually are relatively resistant to that kind of accident. But unfortunately, they can still experience logical or physical damage, leaving your business without essential backups. Our company provides professional repair and recovery of tapes for all cartridges formats.

Certified Cleanroom Facilities for Tape Recovery

As with any data storage system, if the damage is physical, we recover it in the advanced laboratory. The laboratory consists of a certified cleanroom, advanced and secure data recovery tools, and a particular uniform worn by our experts during the repair process.

Utilizing a certified cleanroom is crucial for successful data repair. Such an environment creates space free of particles and pollutants, while an unprotected environment is dangerous for an open, vulnerable tape cartridge. 


These reliable methods allow us to safely restore full access to critical files within few days. For logical damage, we have developed special data recovery software. 

Trusting a failed tape to us, you can rest assured that we will recover as much data as possible. In addition, unlike other data recovery methods, ours is safe. We strictly follow all internationally required data security & privacy protocols and store recovered media on secure servers. After the case is closed and the client receives recovered data, our team representatives wipe all files stored in our server systems. 

Only We Provide Remote File Verification

Our file verification process via remote session is integral to customer satisfaction. Unlike other companies, we are the only ones offering this unique service. Following successful data recovery, we initiate a remote session that allows our customers to peruse and check their files on their own.

What to Do If Tape Cartridge Fails

Experiencing a failure with a tape cartridge can be a distressing occurrence, particularly if the cartridge holds crucial data. Whether you’re dealing with modern tape cartridges like DAT, DDS, DLT/SDLT, LTO, AIT, or legacy media, the steps that are taken when a tape cartridge fails are vital in determining whether data recovery is possible.

Organizations have long relied on tape cartridges for data storage due to their ability to endure and retain data over an extended period. However, tape cartridges are not immune to issues such as physical damage, read/write errors, or degradation over time. It is crucial to act promptly and with caution when a tape cartridge fails to protect the data.


In such situations, it is often recommended to seek assistance from a professional data recovery service. These experts have the knowledge, experience, and specialized tools required to diagnose and resolve tape cartridge failures effectively.

Facing a data tape failure, you need to follow the required steps to prevent further media damage. You should immediately turn off your tape drive and contact a data recovery specialist to do that. 

Note: Do not try to read data from the tape cartridge if you noticed that the data tape drive is failing. By turning off your tape drive, you will minimize the risk of accidental media damage. After turning the device off, do not try to touch data tape and repair tape cartridges on your own.

PITS Global Data Recovery Services provided outstanding service when my SSD became corrupted. The technical team was patient and supportive, making sure I understood the recovery process. They had ... previously mentioned a verification session, and when it came to my turn, I was pleasantly surprised. Instead of just receiving screenshots of my files, I was able to connect to their server, see all of my data, and interact with it‚ÄĒopening files, scrolling, and controlling the screen. I don‚Äôt know of any other company that does this, but it was such a relief to see everything there and to be able to check each file myself. This is truly a five-star company!

After reading so many positive reviews about PITS, I decided to give them a shot. The experience truly was one of the best. They provided me with the evaluation results, and I chose the first ... turnaround time option since it wasn’t an emergency. However, they recovered the data a few days before the deadline, and we had a verification session on the same day to check the files. Everything I previously had on my SSD was fully recovered. Thank you, PITS, and blessings for everything you have done

I couldn't find a professional data recovery company before I contacted PITS. My mom has saved up all of her data on 1TB LaCie HDD but couldn't get access to any of the stored files anymore. So I took ... the responsibility, and started searching up for data recovery companies. The previous companies couldn't save anything from the drive but PITS Global, got back to me with 100% of the data. That's why from my point of view, they are the real ones in their field
