Archive python 04106 drive does not appear to be using hardware compression
Posted on 2004-10-01
I have a seagate tape unit which is recognised and installed as archive python - xxxx - SCSI sequential device by windows 2000. Using NTbackup (interactively or by command line or by scheduler) it does not seem to accept the hardware compression flag. The unit should backup 12GB uncompressed or 24GB compressed. Now that we have passed 12GB NT backup is asking for a second tape.
