Hi Barry,
  Thanks for the reply and those links; so I suppose the follow
up is done anyone know if Legato can do that?
  The only other reply (asking on another list) was that there
is no standardisation between drives - so then the question
is what does one use with Dell LTO-4 drives (the 120T)
and how does it differ on the libraries when they arrive?

  I'm after a really simple setup; for starters I'd be happy
with knowing I've got no encryption - but encryption with a single
key would be nice.
