Re: storage

Hi !

DLT1 is not compatible with DLT7000 and 8000 formats. You will have to use new tapes with it or bulk erase the one you have used before in Quantum drives.

The DLT1 is only able to 'read' tapes written with DLT4000 drives but will treat them as 'read-only'.

Please note that DLT1 is not a Quantum drive but a Benchmark drive.

Hope this clarifies your situation.

best regards,

Cal.
