LTFS - Liner Tape File System in 4 Simple Steps

The Linear Tape file system or LTFS is an open software specification that allows for new simple ways to access data on tape.  With LTFS, accessing data stored on an LTO Ultrium cartridge is as easy and intuitive as using a USB flash drive, it's as easy as drag and drop.  LTFS defines the organizations of data on the tape into a directory structure much like you used to access files on a thumb or disk drive. 

It's a self describing tape format.  Which means you don't need to rely on proprietary backup software.  With Partitioning, tape is divided lengthwise into two sections or partitions.  The smaller partition holds the index which includes the file system information and metadata which provides details about the files contained in the second partition.  When the tape is inserted, the index is quickly copied from the first partition to the workstation or server memory to deliver simple fast access to the files that you need.

You can start using LTFS in 4 easy steps, All you need is an LTO-5, LTO-6 or LTO-7 generation drive and cartridge:

  1. Download the LTFS code from your drive vendor's website
  2. Install LTFS and any additional applications provided (available for windows, Mac and Linux)
  3. Mount the drive, load a cartridge and format it
  4. Drag and Drop content to and from Tape
