myLTO FOR MAC
EASY LTFS COPY APPLICATION
myLTO™ for Mac
myLTO™ for Macintosh is an automated copy utility application geared for media files. The software takes advantage of the Linear File Transfer System (LTFS), developed by IBM and supported by HP, Quantum, Tandberg and other tape drive manufacturers. LTFS is now a SMPTE standard.
LTFS mounts a tape as a user defined read/write volume within the computer operating system. This makes it possible to write and read from the tape as if it were a disk and save files in their original format. It also makes myLTO hardware independent—you can use it with any Ultrium LTFS compliant LTO-7 or LTO-6 tape drive.
myLTO controls deck functions, such as formatting and mounting tapes, and copy operations onto LTO tape with a simple, easy to use interface. myLTO also does all the checking and correction to ensure your files have LTFS compliant naming, for error free, fast backups.
myLTO features a color-coded progress window, in-depth folder naming options, pause and resume processing, ‘video aware’ reports with metadata and thumbnails.
With the software you may choose to make additional copies of your assets onto multiple LTO drives and local hard disks at the same time. Copies may be verified using checksum integrity algorithms (e.g. XXHash, MD5, etc.) in addition to the LTFS write verification process.
Improve consistency by letting myLTO auto-name output folders. Select from various custom naming conventions. Further organize jobs by nested (sub) folders and label them using concatenated naming conventions such as dates, project names, locations, etc.
Alternatively, you may Drag and Drop files directly to the LTO tape without creating any additional folder names.
Choose from three different report formats including PDFs with thumbs and file metadata. Save reports to a common shared folder for a simple, sharable index to your tapes.
