Compaq 12/24GB DDS3

When using this drive with ArcServe Version 9.0 (Build 2010 on Win2K Server SP3 with all Pre-SP4 patches, I see a BlockSize of 16384.

How can I change this to a smaller size (under 1024)?

Why? Larger block size - better perfomance

Hello,

Actually, put the block size to 32768. That is the recommended value for DDS drives.

HTH,
