LTO 7 support

WIth thanks to our friends at Fujifilm, we have been able to get the IBM Ultrium LTO-7 certified for use in Tapewise.Using our current development machine (Windows 10, AMD 64, 16GB ram, QLogic Fibre QLE2462 4GB) this streamed the drive without issue taking around 5 hours 30minutes to read or write a whole tape.

This also gave us another opportunity to play with encryption on the LTO series drives, but we are still struggling to find really good information on how to set this up, the best I’ve found so far has been a post online, and even then couldn’t get it play ball!
