No Compression on Compaq DLT VS 40/80 GB Tapes / Backup Exec 9.0

No Compression on Compaq DLT VS 40/80 GB tapes with Backup Exec 9.0 Rev 4454
- I have a single tape drive in a file server for backups of about 45GB presently.
- I am having to use two tapes to get the complete backup
- I have the setting in BU Exec set to Hardware compression, else software compression
if hardware compression is unavailable.
I have accomplished this previously with no issues - but this is a configuration that was handed over to me from a previous admin's install. There is another 8 tape Ultrium Autoloader that I had to reconfigure to maximize its function - so I suspect there may be an initial install problem with this tape backup unit as well. I'd like to get the complete backup onto a single tape. Any thoughts or ideas are welcom - Thank you!
