Tape tools

Tools'4'Tape is the first diagnostic/utilities tool for tape users developed independently of media and tape drive manufacturers. Not only are we independent we are also advocates of the tape format and see it as still having a long-term future. Tools'4'Tape has several plugins available, which means that you may purchase as little or as much as you want at any time.

  • Are you having problems with backup tapes?
  • Are your backups taking far too long?
  • Is your tape fit for purpose?
  • Are there tapes you want to erase before disposal?
  • Do you want to ensure that the data on your backups is recoverable?
  • Do you have performance issues and don't know where else to look?
  • Do you need some custom tape work done?


With its simple to use interface and easy to expand base coding, we have the knowledge and skill to provide you with a cost effective application for your specific needs. Tools'4'Tape is the baby brother of Tapewise, an application used worldwide by data centres and providers.
