We use windows to make tape (LTO 8) backups with ltfs and now I want to use the hardware encryption. My problem is I can not find a way to activate it. For Linux I found "stenc" but is there something similar for windows?

I only found backup software which have implemented this feature but I do not want to buy a new software just because of this.

So is there a way to activate tape encryption under windows without to buy a new backup-software? Or is there maybe a package for python or an other language to interact with tapes (and encryption).
