The utilization of tape for information storage and information recovery in the computer industry has been there since decades as tape gave a strong and robust method for storing code and data, alongside a far easier cost-of-ownership than the available hard disk options.
Tapes may appear to be sturdy physically. The interior disk cavity is sensitive to magnetic fields. Thus, tapes require high maintenance. Improper care simply leads to overwriting. Consequently, there is a massive loss of data.
The significant advantage of the tape drives is the amount of storage space that they offer. It ranges from a few Megabytes to about 800 GB that too without compression. If the data stored in a tape is lost due to any physical damage, there will be significant loss of data. CSSI is the trusted name in India that provides services in tape data recovery, digital forensics, RAID recovery, drive recovery, etc.
