Based upon my interviews for the Computer History Museum of IBM personnel
involved in the development of LTO and its medium, I'd expect it to be very
difficult to damage an LTO tape

Subject: Damaged LTO tapes

Anyone have any experience on how hard it is to damage an LTO tape.  I mean
damage them to the point they split at the seam.
