Re: LTT saying need to run Drive Assessment test

The Media Assessment test will recommend runnin the Drive Assessment test if an issue is found where the test finds an issue that could be media or drive and requires further testing, with other tapes, to isolate.

There are some cases where a test will write information back to the drive which is then used by the next test.  I can't tell from you description if that would be the case here or not.
