Backup Failure

Anytime I try to backup or copy a 33GB data file on a 40GB or 72GB Data cartridge, it requests for more data cartridge even after formatting the data cartridge prior to starting the process. Sometimes, the amber light blinks continuously.

I have cleaned severally with the cleaner cartridge yet the problem persists. Yet if I backup or copy a 10GB data file on any of the cartridges, it works fine.

Please what do I do? I use the HP Storageworks DAT 72 external tape drive. Thank you.

Are you quoting the 2 to 1 compression specs or the raw capacity?
