Can erased tapes be retrieved?

Recommended Posts



I want to know how permanent erased tapes are. I'm upgrading from a HP Colorado 8GB Travan to a Sony AIT, and want to get rid of the old Travan tapes.


The Colorado seems to have a short erase only, which presumeably erases header info only. I want to make sure that no-one can retrieve data from the Travan tapes. Can anyone help on this?
