Tape copy size

Post by jimscott »

Hi,
Running Veeam 9.5u4b with a LTO6 tape library. New install. Main backup job backs up a VMware cluster about 1.3TB in total for a full backup (8 VMs). But when these are coped to tape the data copied is always more, in this case it is 1.4TB.

The incremental is about 14GB but when it goes to tape it is 15.2GB.

Is this normal?

Jim

Hello,
sounds normal to me. byte vs. bit 1000 vs. 1024, block size... 10% more or less is nothing I would worry about.

Best regards,
Hannes
