We are at the forefront of Tape data recovery

Sony Corporation is one of the world leaders in technology and electronic entertainment. One of its product lines is AIT (Advanced Intelligent Tape) magnetic tapes, a technology for storing data on magnetic tapes that offers high storage capacity and high data transfer speed.

The differentials of AIT tapes include the use of advanced read and write head technology, which allows high density data storage, as well as error correction mechanisms that ensure the integrity of stored data. Another advantage is the robustness of the tape, which can withstand extreme temperatures and adverse storage conditions.

However, even with the advantages of the technology, AIT magnetic tapes are not immune to data loss. Like any other storage medium, AIT tapes can suffer physical damage, technical failure and human error leading to data loss.

One of the main reasons for data loss on AIT tapes is natural wear and tear over time. AIT magnetic tapes have a limited life span and can deteriorate over time, especially if stored in inappropriate conditions. Very high temperatures, humidity and dust can damage the tape and affect the quality of stored data.

In addition to natural wear and tear, AIT magnetic tapes can also suffer physical damage such as cracking, kinking and cutting. This damage can occur during handling of the tapes or during the process of recording or reading data. If the tape is damaged, the data stored in that area may become inaccessible or even unrecoverable.

Another factor that can lead to data loss on AIT tapes is malfunctioning read and write equipment. If the read head is misaligned or damaged, for example, it may not be able to properly read the data stored on the tape. In addition, failures in backup software or human error during the data writing process can also cause data loss.

Finally, technological obsolescence can be a major factor in data loss on AIT tapes. Because the technology used to read AIT tapes can become obsolete over time, it can be difficult to find compatible equipment to read the data stored on the tape. Also, as AIT tapes are used less and less, it may be difficult to find companies that specialize in data recovery from magnetic tapes.

Answers from our experts

What are the main causes of data loss on AIT magnetic tapes?

The main causes of data loss on AIT magnetic tapes include mechanical failures, recording errors, degaussing, physical or chemical damage, hardware or software failures, among others.

How to prevent data loss on AIT magnetic tapes?

To prevent data loss on AIT magnetic tapes, it is important to store them in a safe place with adequate humidity and temperature control, make regular backups, check the integrity of the tape before and after recording the data, keep the equipment in good working order and adopt security measures.

Is it possible to recover all lost data on an AIT magnetic tape?

It’s not always possible to recover all lost data on an AIT magnetic tape, as the severity of the loss and the condition of the tape can affect the possibility of recovery. However, we have a good success rate at recovering data from AIT tapes.

What you need to know

When it comes to cost effectiveness there is no doubt that magnetic tapes are the best choice for storing backups. Tapes were designed for this purpose and offer several years of durability, unlike hard drives.

Hard drives are composed of mechanical parts, which in turn are susceptible to failure and data loss. Not that magnetic tapes are immune to data loss, data loss can occur with tapes, but it is far rarer than with hard drives.

We can separate the connections into three, which are: Standalone, autoloaders and library.

  • Standalone – A single simple drive.
  • Autoloaders – Stores more than one cartridge and has an automatic loading mechanism with LTO drive.

Library – Stores multiple cartridges and more than one drive in various sizes and capacities.

Through unique technologies Digital Recovery can bring back encrypted data on any storage device, offering remote solutions anywhere in the world.
