[aklug] Forensics: looking for tape drive

A local library made an inquiry yesterday about retrieving files from an 
8mm backup tape recorded using Sun OS 4.1.3.  I'm assuming it was made 
using an Exabyte drive of one sort or another.  Does anybody have an old 
working drive or know of someone locally who might be able to retrieve 
the files?

Thanks --greg
