Linear Tape File System (LTFS)
LTFS enables LTO 5 tape drives to segment a LTO 5 tape into 2 partitions, These partitions can be independently accessed to help provide faster data access and improved data management. This is a non-proprietary data format file system that is independent of specific software applications that can enhance ease of use and sharing of data on tape between platforms.
