Rotating memory data recovery

Anyone care to give a thumbnail sketch of what sampling rates
would be necessary to digitize the signals on recording media
(3 1/2", 5 1/4", 8" floppy, hard disks, drums, disk packs, etc.)
at sufficient rates to preserve the encoding for post-processing
in other tools?

Paul Pierce is using this technique to recover data from 7 track
The only problem I see is people on this list underestimate the
costs involved in putting something together that works.
For the most part, analog level recovery isn't necessary. Modern
digital data separators will recover most media, which reduces the
data rates substantially.
