Data Storage and Backup Solutions
Archive for August, 2009
Imagine this scenario. You walk into the data storage room at your business to change out a tape drive on your aged tape drives. You insert the tape and start the machine, but instead you hear a strange noise….. the tape has jammed and is no longer feeding but the head is still spinning….in a panic you hit the stop button. Now what?
We all know there are things that can go wrong with tape drives. Sometimes they’re not cleaned often enough and dust, media particles, and other contaminants could corrupt the drive. Maybe constant use and the vibrations have caused the read/write head to become misaligned. Maybe its head life has simply expired.
Regardless of the problem, you are faced with a choice. You could buy a new system which would cost thousands upon thousands of dollars…..or you can trust CPU Inc.’s professionally trained and highly skilled technicians to repair your tape drives. We apply a unique and effective method in which we keep all parts and supplies on site which translates into one of the fastest turnaround rates in the industry. In most cases, we are able to have your tape drive repaired and on its way back to you the same day it’s received.
