my nudes were leaked along with many other girls from my school.

A website called Dropbox is a cold storage device available for anyone to look at. Some disgusting person made a Dropbox account with all the nudes of girls from my school, alphabetically by name, And put the link out for everyone to see. I was sixteen in some of those picture. Yes I shouldn’t have taken them but by no means am I to blame. I am disgusted. People I don’t know have seen me naked against my will. If you see this place call 2153687606 which is my non emergency local police department and report the Dropbox of north penn high school girls called “I prolly have ur pics”. This is child pornography. As sick as it is, I was “lucky” enough to not show my face or whole body and only have two pictures. Other girls have their faces, spread legs, videos of themselves masturbating, and numerous pictures. Please help this get taken down. This is harassment and disgusting and I am a victim.

LTO (Linear Tape-Open) is one of the most well-known magnetic tape data storage technologies in the world. Created in the late 1990s in order to replace the magnetic tape formats that existed at this period, LTO is today manufactured by many brands, such as HP or Imation, and is widely used in small and large industries, such as banks, hospitals and universities.

This type of tape media is especially useful for data backup. LTO tape media is made very well, the manufacturers state that LTO Ultrium tapes have a 30 year life and can withstand 1,000,000 + passes and these are just a couple of great reasons why it is that essential to recycle them. Not to mention the cash back you will receive, you will save on shredding costs and it’s much better for the environment.

LTO is therefore a key product, and we are always looking to buy any formats, that is to say LTO-1, LTO-2, LTO-3, LTO-4 and LTO-5.

Don’t shred them! Sell them to us so that we recycle them in order to re-use them, after the data being completely erased of course. Indeed, we can certify this thanks to our unique Certified for Reuse® LTO Tape Erasure and Reconditioning.

So that you better understand this exclusive technology, we will post a new article and a video on the subject next week, so keep posted! In the mean time, you can get a glimpse here.

Below is a short video showing some LTO tape media, and what we are looking for.

If you are curious and would like to understand the way we recycle tapes, please check this article: The RYM 12 step recycle process.

Enough, Tandybird

Our Tandberg tape drive failed YET AGAIN. This time it failed within a MONTH of the unit being replaced.

No more tandberg data drives for any of our clients.

Update: according to the Tandberg technician, the SCSI cable needs to be replaced. Possibly the terminator as well, but definitely the cable. Now I just need to find an extra cable or order one ASAP. 

Update #2: Found another SCSI cable and am currently running the ‘Fill Tape’ test from Tandberg’s ‘Data Diagnostic Tool’. It has already passed the previous failure point so hopefully we won’t need to order another cable, but just in case this is the one we would need to order. 

Here’s a image showing the VHDCI connector on one end:

…and here’s the other end, a HD-68 connector:

Update 3: Received another failure, though this time it was much later, failing at 354GB instead of 47GB. Same error message: ’SPTI: Target: Check Condition - Unknown Sense’. I guess it’s possible that the replacement cable I used for the second test is also bad, considering that it’s the same age as the previous cable. I’ll order another cable (and terminator) just to be safe.

Many security experts do not encrypt storage devices

Security of information, transaction details and computer and storage devices are main concern for security experts.

Recently a research found that 50% of security experts are never bother to secure their information and data on portable storage devices.

During “Infosecurity Europe 2014 Event” as per the iStorage’s survey report which questioned to 500 security experts and they found that 50% of them are never bother to save their data on portable drives or flash drives.

But they never encrypt that flash drive or portable devices and that is the reason they are suffering from data loss.
