Tool For Fujifilm Tape Health Check Service

Quick, inexpensive, offline LTO tape diagnostics anywhere using only cartridge memory and barcode information.

Analyses LTO tape cartridges by reading only cartridge memory (CM) information, which reduces the risk of data leakage.

The DC Analyser reads mount history from the CM embedded in the LTO tape. It does not read the information recorded on the tape, thus avoiding risk of leaking confidential information.

Offers quick and easy on-site tape diagnostics anywhere

Begin analysing tapes right away simply by connecting the DC Analyser to a computer. After placing an LTO tape on the DC Analyser, the data will be read in about 7 to 10 seconds.

The DC Analyser can read the barcode and CM simultaneously, allowing it to associate and save the CM information with the barcode information.

Features precise, easy-to-understand tape diagnostic functions

The CM's mount history holds no more than four history entries, but the DC Analyser's database can store up to 18 mount history entries for each LTO tape. This allows precise diagnostics by reviewing the tape's condition over the last 18 usages.

Based on FUJIFILM's wealth of experience as a tape manufacturer, the DC analyzer analyses data and diagnoses LTO tape cartridge. It presents the results to storage administrators in clear and understandable messages. By accumulating data on analyzed tapes, the DC Analyser judges whether the tape or the drive is the source of error, and indicates the result with easy-to-understand messages.

Various Analysis Functions

The software package has a function for listing tape diagnostic results in an Excel spreadsheet and a contextual search function to find specific tapes or drives.
