Tape Drive Question

@Shshanks8

 

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

Sorry, but no one can accurately answer your question because the ACTUAL data compression you will achieve depends critically on the type of data you are trying to compress.  Some types will compress very well; others will be all but incompressable.

Thanks a lot for your reply. So we will take take a best scenario in which I am using all text file because compression ratio of text file is far better than any other file type. Thanks & Regards, Shashank Saxena
