This product is Write Once Read Many (WORM). Once written to it cannot be written over. WORM allows non-rewriteable and non-erasable data to be written, and provides extra data security by prohibiting accidental data erasure. A WORM tape cartridge is basically the same as any other cartridge other then the smart chip in the cartridge is programmed to identify itself as a WORM cartridge and therefore once written to the first time the cartridge is automatically write protected.
