Arcserve backup job stops claiming tape is full

I have a number of scheduled jobs on an Arcserve 12.5 on windows 2003 system using LTO4 tapes.
For the last couple of weeks one of the jobs stops after backing up 810GB exactly and it asks for a new tape to carry on the job.

The system uses LTO4 tapes which are 800/1600GB so it should go well up to 1100 or 1200 minimum as it does on other jobs, actually this same job was working fine on one tape up to a fortnight ago and the size of the backup hasn't changed, I can't figure out what has changed here.

I've checked the compression option on the options and I have it to compress data at the agent level, the settings are pretty much the same as on other jobs.

Any ideas?
