IBM Half High Lto Gen 5 in Mac OS?
by Enrique Londaits 5 years ago
Hi. Would this drive, the IBM Half Height LTO Gen 5 be compatible with a Mac Pro dual 2.66 (2009) if I add an Atto SAS card Info about it is scarce... Thanks for any pointers. Enrique Londaits Solucio

Enrique, do as Bob suggests above. For LTFS use Imagine's PreRollPost rather than the free HP StoreOpen download. BRU and PreRollPost are well worth the money, we've used them both extensively.

It's issues like this that make using PreRollPost much more reliable than the Finder for backing up to and restoring from LTO-5. If you already have it, I'd use it for all LTFS transfers. Frankly surp

Have you tried a new CC project and importing the files into it instead of the CS6 upgraded project Also, we find it works best to transcode to ProRes if you're doing a major edit- a little more hassl
Purchase decisions between BRU Producer Edition or Image Products PreRoll Post
by Sam Lee 6 years ago
It has come to a point where I simply have to use LTO-6 as a viable long-term media. Sadly, the HGST 3 Tb drives that I bought 3 years ago are showing bad sectors big time. Of the 140 batch, about 8 a

Re: Tandberg LTO5 + Atto HBA + Mac + LFTS = reasonable?

I definitely wouldn't recommend using LTFS with the barebones software packages distributed by HP and IBM, at least on a Mac. That is the cheap way to go, but I think if you tried it awhile you'd be d

You don't have to use proprietary software to transfer files to the Quantum LTO-3A tape drive (or the SDLT model, for that matter). LTO is much faster and the tapes have a larger capacity. We're just
