What's the capacity of my SuperStore Tape 6000?

I have a SuperStore Tape 6000

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

Basically your Tape 6000 drive is a DDS2 drive, so you can use DDS2 or DDS tapes in it. No DDS3 or DDS4 tapes allowed.

DDS2 holds 4Gb of data, 8 Gb compressed (if 2:1 compression), DDS1 holds 2Gb of data, 4Gb compressed (again if 2:1 compression).

HTH,
Vince
Tape Drives RULE!!!
