  1. Failed Job - Media problem


    I get the error message below for my full backups on mondays and fridays and
    can't figure it out.

    "The media provided to continue the backup already contains data from one
    or more sets created during this operation. The operation can not be continued"

    This happens at tthe end of a backup job onto a 24GB DLT tape. The full log
    file is below but from my calculations, up to the error message it had backed
    up:

    16.4GB of data and so not a case of space.

    Full Log file:

  3. Re: Failed Job - Media problem

    That's a DDS tape not a DLT tape. In any case, 24GB is not the capacity.
    The native capacity is 12GB. You can usually get a bit more with
    compression, but getting 24GB almost never happens. 16GB sounds about right
    for filling up a DDS3 tape with typical data files.

    First suggestion is to switch to software compression. It may give better
    compression results in my experience.

    Second suggestion is to reduce the number of files you back up. This is not
    really a good option in many cases.

    Third choice is to get a larger capacity tape drive. DDS4 has a 20GB native
    capacity. DLT IV has up to a 40GB native capacity. LTO has a 100GB native
    capacity.
