Tape has been the backup medium of choice for over 40 years.  During that time, many different backup software providers have come and gone in the industry.  Restoring tapes created more than 5 years ago can prove to be difficult for clients, but Tape Ark has the tools and skills required to handle tapes created with almost any format encapsulation.
