Thanks. The data I'm backing up for this project is ArriRaw files. These are one file per frame, So, a Terabyte could hold over 140,000 files. Whereas when one is backing up Red Raw, or F65 Raw files, these are one file per 'clip'. So in 1 TB one would have about 200-400 files or so.

Does the number of files also affect this 8%-15% 'padding' (for lack of a better term)?

Also, speed. I find backing up ArriRaw (file seq) takes longer than Red Raw. Is this a 'nature of the beast' thing?

The total backup for this feature I'm doing has now crossed 120 TB (ArriRaw, Red, GoPro, Canon, Phantom, sound etc etc) spread over 93 tapes.
