Are you running full backups for every job or have you considered run a Full/Incremental schedule??

Below is a link to a great write up by trusted advisor PKH that details the different backup schemes... Please review the Full/Incremental scheme at your convenience

I hope this posting was helpful

...every file is less than 200kb? Then tape as your primary backup target isn't a good idea as the tape is going to stop/start all the time, and never reach the maximum speed it can write too.

I'd suggest backing up to disk first, and then duplicating to tape thereafter.

You might want to take a look at SSR which does image-based backups.  This is a separate product from Symantec and it might be faster in your case.
