  • Greetings..!!

    I am using tape drive with tape of 3TB of LTO-5.  I want to use the compression mode 2:1.

    Then will anybody tell me, what is the maximum size of data I'll store in 3TB tape after compression.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • You have asked in the wrong forum. This forum is for questions and discussions about the TechNet Wiki.

    I don't know which forum would be appropriate for your question. If compression mode 2:1 means what it sounds like, you should be able save about 6 TB on the tape. You may need to seek support from the tape drive vendor.
