Backupexec 12 Compression Problems
January 29, 2013 09:17AM
Hello,
we have a problem with backupexec 12 in the compression feature.
In BackupExec "Media" Option the compression ratio is 1:1, unstead of 1:2...
I Already use the Tracer Utility and the test work fine and the compression are ok.

We did the tests with HP LTT, such as the compression test and work fine (In the test's the
tool informe that the device compression 1:2 it's ative.).
And finally we update the windows driver and firmware of the DAT160.

Can some give a Help ?

The TAPE Drive it's HP DAT 160 SCSI internal
Win2003 Server

Thanks

Hi

If a file is not compressable you cannot blame the compression utility. :)

Now can you get around 100 mb of text files and write it to fresh tape, you
will see the compression, not only 1:2 but mat be 1:20...

Thanks!
