Backup Exec 2012 not compressing LT05 Tapes
I have recently installed Backup Exec 2012 on two of my media servers and I have come across an issue when trying to compress data onto LT05 tapes.
My backups are structured to complete a full backup every evening of the local media server and then 4 remote machines are selected to include into this backup also. I want to back up all these servers onto one tape and I realise in BE2012 you have to create seperate jobs to run over one tape and you cant put them all into one job like you where able to in 2010.
So my first job of the evening is set to overwrite and then each job following is set to append.
I can see the compression rate is set to 1.0:1 which I dont think is right. The compression on each of the jobs is set to hardware and then software if no hardware is available.
These jobs have now been imported from BE2010 and have been set up from scratch when the software was installed.
Any help would be great.
