Tape Recovery

Even your backup may eventually fail. Let us help you.

Nowadays, data backup is still largely done through tape drives. They have high storage capacities, are relatively fast, and are convenient and cost-efficient. However, not a single data backup method is invulnerable to sudden failure, and tape drives are no exception. The worst thing is that tape drives usually fail just when the data is needed the most.

At Computer Answers, we have recognized this problem and approached it with tactical acuity. Our IT engineers have developed advanced procedures and protocols to recover lost data from tape drives, regardless of how they became lost. Whether your tape drives failed due to physical or chemical damage, failure to completely back up data, or because of overwritten data, we are confident that we can recover all the data you need. We are constantly improving our procedures to cope with our clients' needs.

We specialize in all kinds of tape drives.
