Re: How to convert LTFS tape into Normal data tape

You can convert a normal data tape to LTFS tape by formatting the tape using LTFS format commands. If you are using HP StoreOpen Automation software on Windows or Mac OS X you can launch the "LTFS COnfigurator" tool from the desktop and within this utility you could see the 'format' button. In the subsequent windows you could select the library and the particular tape you would like to format.

On Linux (and on the Mac OS X command terminal) you would need to use the "mkltfs" command to format the tape. "mkltfs --help" would show the required options for formatting the tape.
