Advanced DAT Tape Recovery

DAT, or Digital Audio Tape, is a magnetic tape technology primarily used for recording and storing digital audio data. Compared to alternative storage mediums, DAT tapes provide benefits like ample storage, dependability, and a cost-effective price per gigabyte. Although DAT tapes are recognized for their reliability, they remain vulnerable to data loss. Issues such as physical damage, deterioration, hardware malfunctions, or errors can lead to the loss or corruption of data stored on DAT tapes.

Our comprehensive experience and technological capabilities enable us to recover data from all DAT tape series, from the earliest DAT-72 series to the more recent DAT-320 versions. Regardless of the age or capacity of the DAT tape, our team employs precision techniques to restore your crucial data effectively. Our versatile recovery solutions ensure that no matter the specifics of the DAT tape series you utilize, your data is retrievable, safeguarding your essential files against permanent loss.

DAT Tape Failure

Data tape failures can occur for several reasons, including environmental factors, mishandling, and storage conditions. Exposure to extreme temperatures, humidity, and magnetic fields can degrade the quality of the tape. Physical damage from dropping or improper handling can lead to data loss. Over time, the magnetic properties of the tape that stores the data can also deteriorate, especially if the recordings are stored improperly or used excessively.

DAT Tape Failure Reasons

Environmental Exposure

Data tapes are extremely vulnerable to environmental conditions. Exposure to extreme temperatures, high humidity, or magnetic fields can significantly deteriorate tape quality and cause data loss.

Physical Damage

Dropping tape can physically damage it, making data irrecoverable.

Improper Storage

Tapes stored in unsuitable conditions for media preservation, such as areas with fluctuating temperatures or near magnetic sources, can damage them.


Repeatedly using the same tape to store and retrieve data can accelerate the deterioration of its magnetic properties, resulting in data degradation and loss.

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—opening files, scrolling, and controlling the screen. I don’t 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
