With the mTape Thunderbolt 2 LTO-7 Ultrium External Tape Drive from mLogic, you can easily connect this take drive directly to a compatible Windows, Mac, or Linux computer via the dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, each supporting a maximum data transfer rate of 300 MB/s. Once connected, files can be dragged and dropped directly to the tape drive, as it is capable of reading and writing to both LTO-6 and LTO-7 tape drives. It can also read data from an LTO-5 tape. Additionally, tape drives can be formatted, mounted, and ejected using the intuitive mTape Utility included with the External Tape Drive.

Drag and Drop with LTFS
mTape supports the Linear Tape File System (LTFS). With LTFS, mTape mounts LTO media just like a hard disk allowing users to simply drag and drop content to LTO. As LTFS is an open format, the combination of mTape and LTFS empowers you with both ease of use and unrestricted interchange of content between Mac, Linux and Windows computers. The mTape Utility is included for free to help you easily mount the mTape drive using LTFS. Once installed, just connect the drive to a Thunderbolt-enabled computer and launch the utility software to safely format, mount, and eject tapes.
Thunderbolt 2
mTape Thunderbolt 2 LTO-7 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, and it is certified by Apple and Intel. In addition to providing backup speeds of up to 300 MB/second, Thunderbolt peripherals can be daisy-chained together using the mTape.
SAS Expansion
mLogic's mTape SAS unit can be attached to the SAS expansion port on mTape Thunderbolt to enable simultaneous backups/archives to two LTO 6 tapes for the ultimate in data security (requires third-party software). The SAS port also supports other SAS devices such as LTOs and RAID systems.

    mTape Thunderbolt 2 LTO-7 Ultrium External Tape Drive is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Unit I have been using this unit for about a mouth now. The design is excellent. It is relatively small and the sound level from the fan is very low. I gave it 4 stars because the mLogic support is poor. The Tolais group people said that the MacOS driver had problems and I should use the one from my drive vendor (logic). I could not find the driver on their web site, so I send mlogic an email and asked for a link to the driver. I never received a reply. I finally found what looked like the driver on the mlogic web site. A nice design feature of the device is that the Thunderbolt interface is powered by the Thunderbolt cable connection, so the through port works even when the unit is powered off. Nice thought. Some words on software for the unit. I tried both Bru PE and the included YoYottaID. I tested both with the 14TB database I was planning to archive. Both software ran into problems that prevented them from archiving my files. Tolais Group said they would fix the problem in the next update. That was the last I heard from them. The YoYottaID software problem was fixed in a couple of days and they set me an updated copy! The positive is that they are very responsive and their software can handle all my data. The software is easy to use, but not intuitive. It sounds like a lot of the things I would like to see improved are going to be in the next major update. Bottom line: 1. mTape is a great design, but poor customer support. 2. Bru PE software (trial version) was incapable of archiving and restoring my file system until a future software update. 3. YoYottaID now can correctly archive and restore. Excellent customer support.
