The library has LTO-3 drives and has only 200 tape cartridge slots available and no space in the existing frames to add further drives.

- A: A new TS3500 expansion frame with LTO-7 drives can be installed now and be moved to TS4500 at a later date.
- B: LTO-7 drives are faster and can access data on the existing LTO-3 cartridges.
- C: LTO-7 drives and media can be installed in the TS3500 and subsequently migrated to TS4500.
- D: LTO-7 drives are faster and can store more data on the existing LTO-3 cartridges.
