We are at the forefront of Tape data recovery

DLT (Digital Linear Tape) magnetic tapes are a high capacity and durable data storage medium. However, even with these advantages, data loss can still occur.

Data loss on DLT tapes can occur for several reasons. One major reason is physical degradation of the magnetic tape itself.

Other factors that can affect data integrity on DLT tapes include exposure to strong magnetic fields and contamination from dust or other particles.

In the event of data loss on a DLT magnetic tape, data recovery is possible. If data loss does occur, it is important to seek the help of a qualified data recovery professional who can recover the lost data.

Digital Recovery has gone to market with unique solutions that can recover DLT tapes.

With time and use, the tape can become worn, damaged or even warped, which can affect the integrity of the data stored.

Answers from our experts

How can data loss occur on a DLT magnetic tape?

Data loss on a DLT magnetic tape can occur in a number of ways, including read/write errors, mechanical failure of the tape or tape drive, exposure to external magnetic fields, or natural wear and tear of the tape over time.

How can data loss on DLT tapes be prevented?

Some ways to prevent data loss on DLT magnetic tapes include regularly performing backups on additional tapes, properly storing the tapes (e.g. in a climate-controlled and dust-free environment), regularly checking the integrity of the data stored on the tapes and replacing the tapes after a certain number of uses.

What is the average life of a DLT magnetic tape?

The average life of a DLT magnetic tape depends on several factors, such as the frequency of use, the temperature and humidity of the storage environment, and the quality of the tape itself. In general, DLT tapes can last from 10 to 30 years, but it is recommended to replace them after about 5 years of use to avoid data loss.

What you need to know

When it comes to cost effectiveness there is no doubt that 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.
