Is RDX Media Tape based on Hard drive based ?

RDX media is hard drive based. The housing is rugged and can be handled like a tape.

Can I drag and drop files to my RDX device like a USB drive ? Do I have to use a special backup software ?

RDX is the simplest backup solution. The Dock and Media is presented to your computer as an external hard drive and you can just drag and drop files . You don't need any specific software to read/write.

Are these RDX tapes compatible with Dell PowerVault RD1000?

Yes, TandbergData owns the technology on RDX . All the RDX media produced by Tandberg, HP and Dell are compatible with Each other.

Do I need a tape drive to read the RDX Media ?

An RDX dock is Analogue to a tape drive . You buy an inexpensive Dock that can connect by USB 3.0 too and start using RDX media.

Can I use my old RDX media in New Dock ? Can I use New Media in an old dock ?

Yes, all the media is compatible with docks. You never have to upgrade your dock to make use of new RDX Tape Media.

Why are there no RDX Cleaning tapes like LTO ?

There is no head to clean in the tape drive. The dock simply reads the hard drive and there is nothing to clean. Remember RDX is a hard drive based technology.
