The MagStor TRB3-HL8 features an LTO8 tape drive with a 3.5" SATA HDD 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.
