dear all, 
 
i would like to ask question, How do i know space left on Tape drive LTO3 (400 GB). ?
i also want to mentions, when i first (empty) get the status of tape it was "41010000" but as i added 
more files on tape the number increase ,,,,,,,,,,,(strange) space should be decreased to get free left space.
