Hi Niall.
Yes, I've already tried all this feature.
 For the compression to I've already tried bzip, gzip, hardware and so on.
My impression is the next one.
After each 
It send me

directory /etc/flexbackup.conf and /tmp/test2.10734 are différents

FAILURE! Problem with tape driver or parameters.  Please see the FAQ
or try changing the $blksize, $pad_blocks, or $mt_blksize settings.

SO I've tried to see what is talking about this /tmp/test.
I modified the script and  I copy them into a directory
 and when i open it it was just the /usr/bin/flexbackup.
SO no idea but I continue.
Thanks a lot for your help

I assume you are using linux, and you should first change this setting:

 $device = '/dev/nst0';
This is very important!

If your tape drive has compression turned on, you should not use software
I would recommend using software compression where possible as you will get
better predictions on size, and you will get better portability of your
It's far easier to recompile bzip2 for a new platform than it is to reverse
engineer a compression algorithm on a chip when your Dell tape drive dies.

What errors are you seeing in /var/log/flexbackup ?
Why do you feel that the blksize is your problem?
