I checked the part number; it's larger capacity than I was remembering. 
Seagate STT20000A, original equipment in a Dell machine, 10GB native
capacity on Travan TR5 cartridges or compatible, 60MB/min transfer rate,
both uncompressed.

http://support.ap.dell.com/docs/storage/2790c/Specs.htm for drive data.

I was also amused, upon looking at the EXB-8202 again, to notice that
not only is it in immaculate condition, but the little clear plastic
protective film over the tape window is still in place.  Of course, if
it's spent its entire life sitting in a CLOSED-FRONT type 811.....   :)
