Symantec Backup Exec - Slow backup to tape

Dataplan asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-01

We've been running Backup Exec to run our backup for a while now.
Backup jobs have been running at between 450 mb/min - 1000 mb/min.

Now the jobs are running at 150-250 mb/min. This is kinda slow compared to what the job's been able to in the past.

Anybody got some suggestions for how to make the speed go up?
