Symantec Backup exec compression issue
Posted on 2010-09-18
I have been using Symantec Backup Exec V12 on a windows 2003 server 32 bit. I have installed a HP ultrium 3 SCSI 800GB tape drive. My full backup sixe is just over 500GB. Every day i run the backup is request another tape before it gets to 500gb of data?
I have installed the latest HP and Symantec drivers and used hardware and softare compression, but still it asks for another tape to complete backup? I have my media set to overwrte.
When i check the compression i am getting 1.1:1 or sometimes 1.5:1, but still asks for another tape?
I have replaced the drive, but still the same issue and updated Symantec backup exec to 2010, but still the same issue.
Help please? any ideas why it is doing this?
