Re: Autoloader 1/8 Vs 80

Hallo,
the capacity 80GB is when the data is compressed with the ideal factor 2:1 !
the real capacity is 40GB.
this compression 2:1 is used by all tapes, like DAT, DLT, LTO ,SLR etc. .

yes, the 80G capacity comes from compress, however, why the autoloader is not support the compress?

Hallo,
the compression is enabled by default of all HP (and other) drives.
The compression is in conjunktion with the data you want to backup.
Office Files (*.dox, *.xls etc) are good to compress but files like *.exe or *.dll etc. you can not compress.
When I backup my data I write ca. 55GB on my 80GB DLT Media, a mix of fullbackup from OS-system and User Data.

My device is autoloader storage 1/8 vs80, backup system is Arcserve 9, I never saw the data storage was over 40G whthin on one Tape, my tape is HP DLT 40/80G.
Somebody told me that this device is not support to compress the data because of its characteristic, is it true?
