Library Repair Service

Library Repair Service

Dell TL4000 LTO Library

Each tape library repair includes fault diagnosis, a full service and is subjected to rigorous testing procedures to manufacturer standards and beyond. Thus ensuring that your library or drive is ready for the demands of a busy back up schedule.

We specialise in all makes, models and formats of tape library repair from LTO to AIT. We can repair your tape library or library drive at our On-Site library repair centre. As some libraries are too large to easily ship, we can also send one of our highly trained engineers to site for a field service repair.

We have large stocks of refurbished libraries and library drives available. If you need an advance exchange tape drive or if you want an additional drive or expansion unit to add to your existing library, then please call us now.
