Hi Guys,

I am currently backing up about 70gig using veritas backup exec 9.1. we use 40/80 gig tapes, and i rember a while back, 78gig jobs would complete on a single tape, however, now 70gig gets spanned across 2 tapes. is there any reason for this, and is it possible to force it to use full complression and the full 808gig capacity?

Thanks, Gavin
