Automation tapes and drives
See all the loaded tapes on the left, the empty slots on the right. The tape drives are shown at the bottom. There are buttons to manually move, format, mount and eject tapes, but YoYottaID will do all this automatically.
YoYottaID Automation supports up to 4 drives and 160 tape slots. Both mail slots and ordinary slots can be used for tapes, so no spaces are wasted. However it can be quicker to open just the mail slot on a library so the Export button will automatically move a tape into a mail slot.
All tapes must have barcodes with a 6 character code with either L5 or L6 on the end for LTO5 or LTO6 tapes. So 123456L5, ABCDEFL6, YO1234L6, 17376AL5.
YoYottaID will use the barcode to format the tape. No need to manually enter the barcode.
