Product Overview

Although keeping a tape drive clean is important, normal cleaning cartridges are abrasive and frequent use will shorten the drive's lifespan. LTO drives have an internal tape head cleaning brush that is activated when the drive senses that it requires cleaning and also when a cleaning cartridge is inserted.
    HP LTO Gen.1 drives have a cleaning strategy that will prevent the drive from actually using the cleaning tape if it is not needed. In a change of strategy, HP LTO Gen 2,3,4 drives will always clean when a Universal Cleaning Cartridge is inserted, irrespective of whether the drive requires cleaning or not.
