    If you’re using an IBM tape in an HP drive it can be throwing the write errors on LTO6. If you keep getting cleaning warnings, then the head can be bad on the drive.

    Using the wrong media type ruins the head over time.

    seems like the issue is getting resolved, from the time of my last post I haven’t done any changes. But, I could be able to copy 2.3TB to the tape now which is better improvement than the earlier 1.89TB.

    Yesterday I have put a full tape backup test with 2.31TB of arriraw footage and it’s done some what perfectly I would like to say. It still occupies 80GB extra space on tape but it’s still a relief. Please check the below attached screenshot.

    Now it’s time check the restoring to check whether the data is fully copied without errors or not. So I put the same tape to restore back to my internal disk. It asked me 8hours to transfer 900gb. the restoring started at 8AM and now it 10:40 AM, 240gb copied till now and it is still showing 6hours.
