LTO Generation 6 Technology Has Arrived

The latest generation of LTO Ultrium products (LTO 6) started to hit the market this month. LTO Ultrium Generation 6 technology provides a significant upgrade in speed and capacity over the previous generation, with a single tape offering up 6.25 TB of compressed capacity* – more than twice the compressed capacity of LTO Ultrium Generation 5 tape – and up to a 400 MB per second data transfer rate compressed for outstanding productivity.

With LTO-6 technology, video producers can back up their content at high speeds of up to 160MB per second (native). And for storage, imagine being able to fit over 100 feature-length Blu-ray movies on one tape… With LTO-6 technology, it's possible.

LTO-6 specifications also continue to provide for the features that you've come to rely upon from previous generations: WORM to address compliance requirements, encryption to help secure sensitive information and partitioning – which allows for "game changing" Linear Tape File System (LTFS) that gives tape easy-to-use file "drag and drop" capabilities for a variety of compatible operating systems. LTO-6 drives also continue LTO Ultrium technology backward compatibility capabilities, helping to preserve investments by reading LTO-4, LTO-5 and LTO-6 tapes and writing to LTO-5 and LTO-6 tapes.

When Good Drives Go Bad

What to do in a Hard Drive Emergency

  1. If possible, back up data immediately. Do this if you start getting intermittent disk errors or you computer is having trouble recognizing your device. Do not do it if your drive is making strange noises.
  2. If your hard drive is making clicking, grinding, scraping, tapping, "singing," or whining sounds, shut
    it down immediately. These sounds could be the read/write heads hitting or scraping the platters (which is where your data is stored). If you keep running your hard drive, you could be destroying your data. That means:
    • Do not use utility software
    • Do not power the device back up
  3. If you're drive is making unusual sounds, don't try to fix it yourself by turning it on and off, using a diagnostic tool or putting the drive in the freezer.
  4. Don't assume your data is unrecoverable.
  5. Call in reinforcements at DriveSavers or call us at 1-877-807-8095.
Polyline customers receive a special discount when using the DriveSavers data recovery services:
  • $200 "Attempt" Fee is waived. (In the rare instances when DriveSavers can't save your data, you'll pay nothing.)
  • 10% off Services
Just remember to use our discount code: 25716.
