MagStor TRB3-HL6 Desktop LTO6 6TB LTFS Tape Drive with Thunderbolt™ 3 Interface 


The MagStor TRB3-HL6 features an LTO6 tape drive with a 3.5" SATA HDD connected via a Thunderbolt™ 3 / USB-C port as a convenient connection to your desktop MAC or PC computer.  

Taking advantage of LTFS (Linear Tape File System), users can easily drag and drop files to and from an LTO6 tape drive for 2.5TB of native capacity.  

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.
