Sure we can call it that.
Often we find if I take tape 1 out and put tape 2 in the drive still show Tape 1. Sometimes doing an inventory works sometimes it doesn't and we have to pull everything out and wait for it to show empty.
It does indeed have a barcode reader - just have to get labels and never had a problem with other software reading the tapes accordingly.
Cool feature request that no one else has would be a Veeam custom barcode generator.
Right now using some random German site to get the custom barcodes I want (Days of week)
