One of the leading national brands in tape data recovery.
Recover files AIT Magnetic Tapes
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.

Soon after a new wave of LockBit 2.0 ransomware attacks, many companies saw their business come to a standstill because of data locked out of encryption. Here is a case of decryption for one of them.
We received a contact from a company that said it had suffered an attack and was unable to continue its activities. When they arrived at their offices after the weekend, they realised that a large part of their data was inaccessible.
One of the largest River Logistics companies in Latin America contacted us to decrypt files after a Quantum Ransomware attack.
There has been a wave of attacks by the Quantum group targeting several different companies. Small, medium and large companies have been targeted. In this case a large Fluvial logistics company in Argentina was the victim.
What our clients say about us
"We had a serious problem after a power failure of a NAS server in Raid 5. I immediately contacted DIGITAL RECOVERY. After a few days of hard work the problem was solved."
"One of our raid servers had stopped. After several attempts without solving the problem we found DIGITAL RECOVERY and 5 hours later, at 4am, the data was recovered."
"We appointed DIGITAL RECOVERY in a special case (of data loss) in a raid 5 storage. Digital Recovery was able to recover 32 million files so our customer was extremely satisfied.”
"Without a doubt the best data recovery company in Latin America. The contact Digital Recovery will always be saved on my phone, because inevitably I will need again."
"The quality of the service is excellent. The attention given to customer service is gratifying and the feedback we receive reassures us that we can trust the work and dedication."
"Great company, they saved me from a big problem! I recommend, fast service, my thanks to the Digital Recovery team for the attention and quick solution to the problem! Show!"
"Second time that I count with the agility and professionalism of the Digital Recovery team, they are very experienced and agile. I recommend to all"
"They helped me recover some data that I had thought was lost. I had a great experience with the team for their calmness, agility and transparency."
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.

Which is the best backup option, tapes or hard drives?
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.
What are the main connections of magnetic tapes?
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.
