Tape Capacity

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

 

 

We are running Retrospect for Workgroups 5.x on a Win2k server with a DLT drive, using 40/80GB tapes. Retrospect sees the capacity of these tapes as "4.9GB" and places only 4.9GB of data on them before requesting a new tape.

 

Am I missing something that lets Retrospect work with DLT tapes successfully? How can I get it to use the 40 GB the tapes actually has?

 

 

 

thanks for any help

The following Knowledgebasecolor=blue> articles will explain in more detail and more clearly then I would be able to in this forum. You can find all of these articles and more by doing a search in the Knowledgebase for "capacity"

Why does the amount I can store on my tapes vary?

What is the point of the Set Capacity button?
