Hello!

I'm trying to write in a 780GB tape 400/800GB when you get 530GB ARCserve asks to insert a second blank tape.

I am using ARCserve 11.5 SP4 with on DELL PowerVault 124T.

Please can someone help me?

Thank you.

Native is 400GB and compress is 800GB. You're not guarantee 800GB but the possibility is there.
I think you've maxed the tape capacity.

i think the same as nhbilly

I haved the same problem with my LTO2 200/400

In my case it uses to fit about 280 at maximum 310gig.

Not all the files can be compressed in 2:1 ratio.

Sorry mate.

per experience, seldom can you reach max (compressed) size of the tape. gontzilla is right. not all files can be compressed to 2:1. Worst ratio are always images, pictures and databases
