Re occurring LTO5 hw issue
Hi all,

We have 2 LTO5 drives in a Quantum Scalar i500.

Within a years time, we have gone through 4 drives total and luckily we are on support.

We catch the problem by doing 2 verifies on the archives; a full virtual restore were the entire tape(s) are read and then a real selective restore were we test the restored data.

We have 650TB on tapes within a years time.

Any one have similar experiences with LTO5 drives?

My data room may be a little dusty but nothing to sneeze at :)
