ObNitPick (just to prove we're back in list mode :-)): I believe Jerome
means CompacTape and CompacTape II. DECTape is the 3/4" stuff on the
"funny little reels".

Nominal capacities are 95MB for TK50 and 295MB for TK70. I suspect a
larger blocking factor will indeed get you more partitions on the TK70.
