How to backup to LTO4 tape with compression

Hi all,

I would like maximize our LTO4 tape by utilizing compression. We have an IBM TS2340.  And I use the Microsoft backup utility of windows 2003 server. But I can't find the setting to enable compression. Where can i find it? Thank you.

ntbackup backup /HC:on

/HC:on|off ---- Specifies whether or not hardware compression, if available on the backup media, is used. Usually only tape drives have the ability to compress data.

Hardware compression is usually on by default!
