Regarding hardware, I’m glad to read the Sonnet SEL adapted to TB2 is working for you. We are contemplating the same setup. OS-wise I’m not sure.. we too have a stand-alone HP LTO drive.. We’d like to run Monterey.
Regarding software, we were BruPE users too. We need to keep a working setup for restores. I’ve contacted OWC about BruPE / ArGest copatibility on newer MacOS but get mostly run-around instead of simple answers.. And, at nearly $600.00 for ArGest, we may just keep an old legacy system intact for restores.
Going forward, we have settled on Yoyotta. Was baffled by the UI at first too. Once it’s methodology clicked in, we have really enjoyed using it. What little support we needed has been very agile and thorough. Website has really useful tutorials as well and the software seems to keep pace with OS and hardware updates. As you can see, they frequent these forums with useful feedback instead of sales pitch.
I’m still testing various LTO software options but I’m leaning towards Yoyotta at the moment and they were very quick and helpful in responding by e-mail and also above in this forum.
It was sad to hear that Tolis and BruPE is no more as the software worked well for us and the guys were super helpful whenever I contacted them. They went to a lot of effort to help me when a HP LTO drive went faulty out of warranty and through their efforts HP supplied me with a new unit.
In case it’s of any interest, we are using a 24TB Promise raid which connects to our Mac Pro via TB2 and this unit while now getting old, has worked flawlessly.
I’ve just purchase 2 x 36TB G-Raid drives for the office and these are being used in raid 1 (mirrored) copying all our camera media onto two drives for redundancy. They use enterprise class 7200rpm drives and they are running at approx. 250 MB/s which is impressive for single drives.
In the field I use Samsung SSD’s and Lacie drives for daily camera media backups.
I’ll keep you posted on how we get on with Yoyotta
