We repair and refurb tape drives all day long at Magnext / MagStor.

I saw that you mentioned running a cleaning cartridge 10x times in a row. This is a big time no-no and can kill your drive head. Only clean when the light is on.

If you're failing performance tests with good media, then your head is is usually going bad.

The way LTFS works, it can never give you an accurate capacity of the tape because each file you copy over writes a separate marker file.
