Disk 800 GB is 400 GB

Hi

I have MSL 2024 and I have Tape with 800 GB as capacity but in Data Protector it's just 400 GB

May I know Why ?

Regards
Amd

The 800GB is the compressed capacity (assuming 2:1 compression you can enable compression on your LTO drive.

If you write files that are not easily compressed (or already compressed) then you will not get the 800GB.
