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 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.

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 in order to prevent further media damage. To do that, you should immediately turn off your tape drive and contact a data recovery specialist

Note: Do not try to read data from the tape cartridge if you noticed that the data tape drive is failing. 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. 

The List of the Most Common Data Loss Scenarios include:

  • Data Corruption Causing Unreadability
  • Media Degradation
  • Overwritten Files
  • User Errors
  • Physical Tape Damage (e.g., Fallen Tape)
  • Flipped, Folded, or Torn Tape
  • Partially Readable
  • Water Damage
