    When you say "Use the command line "unltfs" command to clear a tape:" you don't mean on one of my good tapes with all my data surely? Do you mean with a blank tape?

    I tried the command with a blank tape and it throws back this message:

    dyld: Symbol not found: _UCNV_TO_U_CALLBACK_STOP_4_0
    Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/LTFS.framework/Versions/Current/usr/lib/libltfs.2.0.0.dylib
    Expected in: /Library/Frameworks/ICU.framework/Versions/Current/usr/lib/libicu.40.1.dylib
    in /Library/Frameworks/LTFS.framework/Versions/Current/usr/lib/libltfs.2.0.0.dylib
    Trace/BPT trap

    Is there something missing from my Library?

    No - I meant to do that with one of your questionable / bad tapes.

    However ...

    That is indicative of a bad LTFS driver installation. The specific error indicates that the ICU package hasn't been properly installed (why it's needed, no one can tell me other than it was part of IBM's original source files). Check your DMG that you installed LTFS from and make sure that you install the ICU package.

    Sorry to keep asking questions, you're being so helpful! Where do I find the LTFS driver installation? Is it part of my HP tape drive or is it an LTFS system that I need to get from somewhere?

    You'll need to download the package from the HP site. I can't direct link because of the way their servers do links, but this is the top page that you'll use to get to the downloads:

    Ah, ok, so is it the StoreOpen Standalone software?

    Correct. The "open source" file is the source code and even I have problems compiling that hodge-podge of source (and I've been at this stuff since 1978 ).

    Also, I forgot to mention that it also means that your existing tapes are probably okay and will be recoverable using ltfsck after you get the drivers restabilized.

    Excellent, you were absolutely right! So it seems I can now mount all my old tapes fine (except the latest) and the StoreOpen app works as it should. That's one HUGE relief. Now it's back to the issue that triggered all of this to begin with, because my last tape won't mount. StoreOpen says this in the logs:

    Mount volume

    LTFS20076I Triggering drive diagnostic dump
    LTFS20096I Diagnostic dump complete


    LTFS session finished


    This is what happened initially: I successfully wrote two Mac Finder folders to the tape, checked them back, all good, deleted originals from the Mac. In another session, I started writing another batch of folders when it threw up some kind of error, something about write failed. So I went through the usual procedure of un-mounting and ejecting. It was after this that the tape stopped mounting. The first batch of data is not backed up anywhere else, so it's critical that I retrieve them, I'm not bothered about the rest.

    So I've just tried typing the command usr/local/bin/ltfsck 0 --full recovery but I got this:

    Ces:~ ces$ /usr/local/bin/ltfsck 0 --full-recovery
    LTFS16000I ltfsck starting, LTFS version 2.0.0, log level 2
