DAT40

I have a DAT40 C5683A with an Adaptec AHA-2930U Controller on a Proliant M350. Running Veritas BackUp. Has been doing backups fine for 2 years+. Last week the elapsed time for the daily backup (same amt of data) went from 2:56 Hrs to 15 Hrs. I changed the tapes. I ran the cleaning tape a few times (already do it weekly, sometimes 2x) and seemed OK for a few days. It did it again Mon-Tues and Wed nights. I used the cleaning tape 3x and it was OK last night. Ran Tape Works with a new tape and TEST was OK except that it could not determine Life Data. Also, ran the System Performance and it was 10mb/sec but it "couldn't stat file c:\\System Volume Information\*- Access is denied". The firmware is updated, as well.

Does this make any sense? Thanks for the info.
