given the voluminous capacity of lto-7 tapes (and its getting denser), while its nice that i can cram so much stuff on a tape, the disadvantage is as jobs age off, i end up with sparsely populated very expensive tapes that dont become available for sometimes extensive periods of time. as a result i end up having to buy new tapes when i "have" the capacity locked up by aged out jobs.
can a tape consolidation feature be added please? my old tivoli system had one years ago. thjis would help a lot with my consumables budget
