LTO Data Recovery, DAT Data Recovery and Other Tape Cartridges and Libraries

Once your media is received by CBL, it is immediately logged into our tape recovery service system. At this point, you will receive a call from your CBL customer care professional who will confirm receipt and gather further information to help guide the CBL laboratory engineer. The hard disk or tape is then quickly sent into the laboratory for evaluation.

Our experienced tape recovery service specialists will thoroughly examine your tape for damage before any attempt is made to read the data.

Carefully securing a copy of the tape cartridge is the most vital part of this procedure, especially if the tape is worn or damaged in any way. Our tape recovery specialists have the expertise to thoroughly examine your tape before reading it. Only then will they perform a low-level read in order to create a working copy of your data. No recovery will ever be performed on the original media. This policy is in place to make sure that the original data is never compromised in any way.

As soon as the evaluation is complete, your customer care professional will contact you to inform you of the results. If data recovery is possible, a quotation will immediately be e-mailed to you for your approval.
