Tools-4-Tape is the first diagnostic/utilities tool for tape users developed independently of media and tape drive manufacturers. Not only are we independent we are also advocates of the tape format and see it as still having a long-term future. Tools-4-Tape has several plugins available, which means that you may purchase as little or as much as you want at any time.
