DDS available capacity

Hi,
I'm a beginner in the tape world so this can be an obvious question. For a DDS tape in HP-UX, is it possible to know the available (uncompressed) capacity (I mean, after writing some files to the tape)?
Or, to put it in other words, how can I know the compression ratio achieved writing a file?
Thank you.

Re: DDS available capacity

Hi,
nice question, never thought about it ;)
I don't know any utility which would be able to check this.
regards,
Thierry.
