This is a removable storage device mainly used for backing up data. The drive acts like a tape recorder, reading data from the computer and writing it on to the tape. Since tape drives have to scan through lots of tape to read small amounts of scattered data. That is why they are used almost exclusively for data backup. The benefit of tape drives is that they typically have large capacities for storing data, for a lower cost than hard drives similar in size. Also, multiple tapes can be used to make incremental backups (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.), which is much cheaper than using multiple hard drives.
As information-technology budgets shrink, low-cost tape storage has become more attractive as a way to manage ever increasing corporate data growth.

Tape Data Recovery – Causes of Data Loss
There are a number of reasons a tape may become unreliable, many of which are out of your control. Just because there was damage to the tape or taping device does not mean that you should have to suffer the inconvenience of lost data. We can help you retrieve data from tapes with:
- Physical Damage: Tapes that are broken, scratched, or have experienced flood or fire damage.
- Corrupt Files: Files that have been damaged in a way that makes them irretrievable by the taping device or other computer.
- Old software: Old models of tapes that do not function with new software upgrades.
