MSL4048/Backup Exec 12 Data Compression

I have a MSL4048 with 2 LTO 4 drives. I have compression set in Backup Exec (hardware, then software if hardware not available.) I'm not getting data compression as the tapes are only showing 800gb. I need to be able to compress to the full 1.6tb as I have 22tb to backup to tape. Any settings on the library to enable compression?

Test compression on LTT even if compression is enable on the tape drive backup exec is the one who enables it during backup.
