Common Causes of Tape Failure and Data Loss

Tape storage devices are known for their reliability and durability, but they are not immune to failures. Various factors, including physical damage, mechanical failure, human error, and software/hardware malfunctions, can lead to tape failure and data loss.

Physical Damage

Tapes can get damaged from mishandling or mishaps, like dropping them or exposing them to extreme temperatures or magnetic fields. Physical damage can cause data to become unreadable, leading to potential data loss.

Mechanical failure

Mechanical failures in tape drives or other components can prevent tapes from being read or written properly, resulting in data loss. Ageing equipment and wear and tear are common causes of mechanical failures in tape storage devices.

Human error

Accidental deletion or overwriting of data can occur due to human error, leading to data loss. Proper backup and disaster recovery plans are crucial to prevent such incidents.

Software/hardware malfunctions

Issues with software or hardware used for tape storage, such as outdated drivers or firmware, can make data inaccessible or corrupt, resulting in potential data loss. Regular maintenance and updates can help prevent such malfunctions.

I took my Synology NAS to PITS for assistance after one of its four drives failed unexpectedly, leaving me unable to access any of my data. PITS immediately understood the critical nature of my ... predicament and wasted no time getting to work. They even completed the data recovery much sooner than I had anticipated. They also organized a verification session, allowing me to review the recovered results. Honestly, I was skeptical about the possibility of a full recovery, but to my surprise, all of my documents, media and the rest of the files were successfully recovered. The service was truly commendable. Should I ever face a similar issue in the future, I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.

I've had my LaCie SSD Pro for a really long time, and it's been super important to me. It has all my stuff from high school to the end of college. I had to contact PITS because my drive started having ... problems and all my files got messed up. But, thanks to PITS, they got all my files back, checked everything was okay in our verification session, and gave me a new drive with my files on it. I couldn't have asked for more, truly chuffed with their help.

Great service - I've never been as satisfied with anyone as much as I've been with PITS

After my Nan passed away, we discovered an old computer brimming with decades of family photos. The following day, when I attempted to transfer the media to my drive, the laptop displayed a black ... screen and ceased functioning. Having taken it to several computer repair shops without any success in recovering the data, PITS was highly recommended to me. And rightfully so. I can't thank PITS enough for what they've done for our family - we received all of the media and even the rest of her data. I am truly blessed to know that there are people who can help during these times
