BlockSize

What is the best blocksize to configure within ArcServe to use with the Compaq internal AIT 100/200 tape drive attached to the internal 5i controller of a Proliant DL360 server? Default ArcServe assumes 16360 kb blocks but I see much better performance when using 64000 K blocks. I don't know if with this setting I will be compromising data integrity or not.
