From the Vendor


FATS/FATAR is a set of multi-purpose tape subsystem tools which includes –

  • ERASURE. Quickly and securely erase full or partial tapes before they leave the safe confines of your data center. 
  • CERTIFICATION. Meet audit requirements by verifying the quality of your tape media and certifying the readability of your tape-based data. 
  • RECOVERY. Recover data from tape errors, data checks and improperly closed tapes.
  • MAPPING. Map a tape to verify its characteristics and contents - the files, the filenames, DCB characteristics, blocksizes, creation and expiration dates, compression statistics.
  • COPY. Copy a tape, either an exact “bit-for-bit” image, or a “logical” copy, which allows you to rename, reblock, and selectively copy files.
