I use Backup Exec version 9 to back up my Windows 2000 server to a DLT IV tape drive. My question is that yesterday, I set a job to back up 110 Gig of data, and it didn't fail. Everything I have read says that DLT IV stores 40 uncompressed/80 compressed.
The files were mostly SQL Server backup files, which I thought were pretty compressed already.
What is going on here?
Also, I get about 200 meg per min backups on average. Does this seem normal?
