Hello,

After going through some links i have impression that it is bad idea to use hardware compression in tape drives. Some of the reasons are

Data may be uncompressable.
Disk size cannot be predicted.

Are there any more reasons?

So whether it is better to use compression on host machine rather than on tape drives?

Thanks
Raj
