Skilled magnetic tape data recovery services in Singapore that will rescue your critical business files
Experienced magnetic tape data recovery services can enable your business to get back important documents and records you thought might be lost forever.
Although an old technology, magnetic tape is still used by businesses to store and archive data. It’s because of its low cost, high level of durability, and large storage capacity, when compared with hard disk drives and solid-state drives.
Tape stores data in the same way as your computer but with magnetic states representing the 0s and 1s instead of switching an electric circuit on or off. These data bits are held on a magnetic layer suspended in a polymer binder that holds the magnetic particles together.
Causes of tape data loss
If a tape binder loses integrity through wear and tear, the tape may become unreadable.
Data can also be lost through changes in the magnetic properties of the tape, dirty read/write heads (sometimes called tape drives), and fire and water damage.
Further, data loss issues may arise if a tape cassette or cartridge is dropped, or left in strong sunlight or near electronic equipment.
Tape can also be contaminated by fingerprints, mould, dust, and airborne pollutants.
One sign that your tape storage system may be failing is when the tape won’t move across the read/write head. This “stiction” may cause the tape to bond itself to the head, causing damage to data.
Tape data recovery pricing and savings
The TOTL/Greenergy partnership specialises in retrieval of lost tape data.
Our tape data recovery service starts at S$2,500 a tape (non-physical damage) and from S$5,000 per tape in instances of physical damage.
If you hire Greenergy through this website, you’ll get a special 5% reduction and a free priority, fast service that would have amounted to 50% of the recovery cost.
