LTO 6 Compression issue

Hello everyone,

I use BE16 on my Windows Server 2016 with LTO 6 and want to backup about 4.5 TB Data on it.

Then i have enable hardware compression (natively supported by my LTO Tape and Loader) but compression ration is 1:1

I use it to backup Hyper-V VM (FULL / DIFF) to tape

Is there a trick to compress data on my tape ? I could't find solution


Sorry for my english, i usualy speak French


Best regards all

Re: LTO 6 Compression issue

Does the backup job log show that hardware compression is selected?
