    Slow Restores

    I recently tested restoring a large volume of data (48GB, 50,000 files, 7500 folders) and the restore took around 30 hours. Obviously this is an extremely long time considering the backup takes under an hour. Does anyone know what to adjust to speed up the restores? What I noticed from watching the job is that it seemed to be searching the tape rather frequently for files which may be the source of the slow speed. Here is what I believe are the critical details. 1. Backing up to DDS4 tapes in an HP SureStore DAT40x6 autoloader. 2. Operating system is Win2K server on all boxes 3. Retrospect Version is 6.0 on all. 4. Data compression in hardware 5. Restore job type is selected files
