Super magnet or Sledge hammer.... Thats about the only way. You could write junk data to them but it takes at least 8 passes to really clean them. If you have encryption on then you have nothing to worry about.

Hi all,

I've another question. We've got two new 3584 Libraries with 3592 Drives.
Our boss want to sell the old Library 3494 with the all 3590 Tapes (about 2300). For this reason we've to destory the data on this tapes. The Library is attached via SCSI to our AIX TSM Server (Version Does anyone know how we can realize this matter?
We are at a loss how we can do destorying 2300 Tapes with minor effort.

With kind regards,
