Hello LTFS. Drag. Drop.

mRack ships with a simple drag and drop Linear Tape File System (LTFS) archiving and retrieve utility for macOS.  To ensure that what you archive to mRack is an exact replica of your source material, the utility utilizes xxHASH64 verification.  Detailed Transfer Logs are also generated with every archive.

If you require an archive/retrieve app for macOS that features an integrated database to track assets offloaded to LTO, we recommend purchasing mTape bundled with YoyottaID LTFS software.  Check out their video here.
