DAT 72 tape drive durability

DAT 72 tape drive durability


I would like to know how many times I can rewrite on a DAT 72 HP tape cardridge. In the document HP LTO Ultrium Media.pdf says 260 times for Ultrium cardridges, but I could not found any document that says the same about DAT drives.

Thanks very much!
