Table: Default size of shared data buffers
On Windows, a single tape I/O operation is performed for each shared data buffer. Therefore, this size must not exceed the maximum block size for the tape device or operating system. For Windows systems, the maximum block size is generally 64K, although in some cases customers use a larger value successfully. For this reason, the terms "tape block size" and "shared data buffer size" are synonymous in this context.
