Re: imaging/duplicating HP tape cartridges - lots of questions

Jack Rubin

For archival imaging, no need, at least initially, to do anything with the bit stream other than to capture it. At that point, either one could attempt to read the image itself or else write it back to another tape, hopefully allowing the creation of a new generation of system tapes.

What would be the "best" FACT drive to use from the standpoint of reliability and ease of control?

Does any other machine that uses these cartridges have a richer command set that allows full tape duplication? Does the 9875 dual drive allow this?
