Onstream Data TapeDrive Driver

  
  1. I have tried both drivers shipped with the tape drive and downloaded from Onstream web site. I have tried installing the drivers before and after connecting the drive to PC. No antivirus is running throughout the process. I have tried the Echo software shipped with the tape drive as well as downloaded from Onstream web site.
  2. On Linux the OnStream drive, which uses the OSST driver is one such example, and it is known to work with Bacula. In addition a number of such tape drives (i.e. OS drivers) seem to work on Windows systems.

The IBM TS2280 Tape Drive uses next-generation LTO Ultrium 8 cartridges to store up to 30 TB of compressed data per cartridge – twice the capacity of previous generations – with a ten-year TCO for data retention that is 86% lower than an all-disk solution and 66% lower than an all-cloud storage solution.
