I need to know how to see what tapes this drive can handle. I believe there are LTO 2 tapes in there currently, but I am getting to the point of needing more space.

Powervault 124T is the library, you need to know what tape drive it has in it. Assuming it's an LTO2 drive you'll have to upgrade to a higher capacity drive and buy new media.

It has a LTO 2 drive in there (Ultrium 2). I will need a 3 or 4 for bigger drives. Thanks for the help.
