The First and Only Certified Thunderbolt 3™ Dual Tape Drive in the World!
Apple and Intel Certified for MAC and PC.


Overview: MagStor TRB3-HL-MIG 

The MagStor TRB3-HL-MIG  features an LTO6 and LTO8 tape drive connected via a Thunderbolt™ 3 / USB-C port as a convenient connection to your desktop MAC or PC computer. 

Read as far back as LTO4 and migrate to LTO 5/6/7/8 

Taking advantage of LTFS (Linear Tape File System), users can easily drag and drop files to and from an LTO5 tape and migrate up to LTO8.

Thunderbolt™ 3 devices are fully backwards compatible with previous generations of Thunderbolt™ technology.  We recommend the Apple MMEL2AM/A adapter with those using older Thunderbolt™ ports.
