SDLT Tape Life Span.

Hi guys,

I have 700 SDLT II tapes sitting off site. These tapes are in rotation for 5 week periods. The technoligy is old and the tapes have been in circulation for over 4 years. I am trying to get my company to include in the current refresh proposal to include the 2X lbraries.

What i need to get is ammunition on how depleted this media could be and what is the working life span of this type of media.,


Anyone with ANY information that could assist with getting rid of this old technoligy i will be really interested in reading.


Thanks all for you interest in my post.
