Tape Usage - BE10d
Is there anyway to make BackupExec Version 10d use the tapes better? I am running LTO2 tapes which duplicate my backups from disk, and they are rarely half filled, so I end up with a nightly backup being spanned across 5 or 6 tapes, when the whole backup would probably fit on 2 or 3 tapes. Often they are marked as having been written to, and only 96kb has been written to the tapes, leaving hundreds of gb free! Obviously this is not a very efficient use of tapes. I used to use TSM which used up all the tape, but BE doesn't seem to do this. Is there anyway to make it use more of the tape for a backup? Thanks, Martin.
