Our Process

Upon receiving your tape drive or library, we thoroughly inspect your drive, clean it, test it, assess what is wrong, then we contact you with an accurate estimate of the total repair costs.

No surprises. Once you give us the go-ahead we upgrade the firmware, replace the worn or defective parts and align the head. Board replacement is commonly required. Once the repair process is complete, a final bench test is performed to ensure that your drive is again functioning at the original factory specifications.

You get a 6 month parts and labor warranty on our repair work.

Our normal repair time is just 4-7 working days, not counting shipping time in or out of our centrally located Minneapolis, Minnesota repair facility. We have an expedite service option that cuts the repair time down to 2-3 days for an additional fee of $100. In addition we all speak clear English, a little Spanish, and will treat you with prompt and professional attention to your needs. That is why we are better than our competition.

Multiple Drive Discounts

We offer multiple drive discounts to service companies or organizations with multiple tape drives at multiple locations around the country. Please inquire with your specific repair details.
