  • description

As DLT tape drives and media have improved, the need for head cleaning has reduced significantly. However, environmental factors, cleanliness of operating locations and high duty cycles can impact drive performance. When cleaning is needed, specially formulated cleaning cartridges can keep DLT tape drives running strong. DLT tape cleaning cartridges are designed to ensure the right level of care for each specific DLT tape drive head. Cartridges work in conjunction with cleaning algorithms in the tape drives firmware to ensure that performance and reliability are not compromised. Why take risks with your mission-critical data? Keep your DLT tape drives at optimal performance with DLT tape cleaning cartridges.

Three important cleaning tips

1. Always clean drives when cleaning is indicated through the cleaning light or through the backup software. The drive constantly monitors its performance and will trigger cleaning events.

2. Only use a cleaning cartridge when cleaning is indicated through your backup software, or when the drive's cleaning light is illuminated. Cleaning on a preset schedule, rather than when requested by the drive, leads to excessive wear, diminishing drive life and performance.

3. Using a cleaning cartridge more than 20 times results in ineffective head cleaning. Always mark the label on your cleaning cartridge. After the cartridge has been used 20 times, it must be retired.
