Hey warrl,,,

You said:

Nobody cares about rotational latency on backup tapes. Plus they can easily fast-forward at higher speeds than they read/write, which is really awkward to do with disks. So their read/write movement speed can be adjusted for maximum usable data density. Meaning that if you're designing the tape system for the purpose, you can probably store data at higher density on a tape than on a disk.

Pretty Funny,,,,,, LOL...

On 2000' - 1/2" tape Reverse to the Previous File's Tape/Gap and/or Rewind can take Minutes, depending on the File-Size!!!!

JIMHO,,,,, time to ditch the Tapes....
