Hi Backup People,

I have set up one of my clients with an Ecrix VXA tape drive using the above
media. It was my understanding that with the hardware compression built into
the drive turned on I would get the full 66 Gig capacity. My client has just
rung me to say that Retrospect is requesting a new tape & a quick inspection
(over the phone via my client) of the original tape in the scheduled backup
set revealed that it has used 33 Gig. I will have to go & investigate this
but could someone who knows please tell me if I need to have software
compression turned on to get 66 Gig out of the tape or is there something
else making Retrospect ask for another tape.

The backup set which was due to be used tonight was set A & Retrospect is
saying that it will call the new tape 2-set A which makes me think it
probably is full.

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to reply
