  • LTO
  • DLT
  • DAT
  • DDS/8mm
  • ¼” cartridges
  • DEC TK
  • QIC
  • AIT
  • ADR

Common Logical (Soft) Hard Drive Failures:

Regardless of the type of tape or the hours involved in the process, you pay only for the data you receive. No assessment fees, no attempt charges. We pioneered the industry’s first no data, no charge guarantee, and it’s been our promise ever since.

Common Causes of Tape Failure

As soon as we receive your media, Data Recovery Canada performs an in-depth evaluation to determine the precise cause and extent of the damage, allowing our data recovery specialists to create a customized recovery plan.

Common causes of tape failure or data loss include:

  • Erased or overwritten data (human error)
  • Broken or de-spooled tapes
  • Damaged tape header or misaligned drive heads
  • Water, smoke, or fire damage
  • Corruption due to electrical or mechanical failure
  • Backup system or tape library failure
  • Bent, cracked, or otherwise damaged tapes
  • Software corruption
  • Incorrect configuration or setup
