MagStor Desktop DUAL LTO8 12TB LTFS Tape Drive with Thunderbolt 3 Interface LTO-8 Part# TRB3-HL8-DUAL

The First Certified Thunderbolt 3 Tape Drive in the World!


The MagStor TRB3-HL8-DUAL Desktop features Dual LTO8 tape drives connected via a Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C port as a convenient connection to your desktop MAC or PC computer.

Taking advantage of LTFS (Linear Tape File System), users can easily drag and drop files to and from an LTO8 tape drive for 12TB of native capacity.

Thunderbolt 3 devices are fully backwards compatible with previous generations of Thunderbolt technology. We recommend the Apple MMEL2AM/A adapter with those using older Thunderbolt ports.
