i'm making backup using ntbackup to write on LTO Ultrium 2 cartridges ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_Tape-Open ).
All worked fine till last week when suddenly all cartridges are rejected (for backup) by the tape. (Just a bit of information i tried the tape with a NEW cartridge and all going fine).
My question is: is there a free/opensource software to check the health of my LTO Ultrium cartridges?
In another place where i worked we have to revalidate cartridges (LTO Ultirum 1) and retension them every year (using CA Brightstor).
Thank you in advance!
