LTO 7 Type M






LTO program introduces a new feature for LTO 8 drives
LTO-8 drive can write 9TB on brand new LTO-7 cartridge instead of 6 TB as specified by LTO-7
TPC will designate these LTO 7 Type M Media tape barcode with last two characters M8
Normal LTO-7 cartridge will be referred to as LTO-7 Type A
LTO-7 Type A has a capacity of 6 TB and automation bar code label will be ending with L7
LTO-8 automation barcode label will be ending with L8
Only new unused cartridge will be initialized as LTO-7 Type M media
Once initialized as LTO-7 Type M media, it cannot be changed to 6TB LTO-7
LTO-7 cartridge initialized using LTO-8 drives can be read/write only using LTO-8 drives
LTO-7 drives cannot read/write LTO 7 Type M Media
