ibm lto 6 format media without compression
on Mar 22, 2019 at 1:07:13 am

Hi folks, last post here was maybe some ten years back.
I recently acquired an lto 6 drive from ibm. It connects over sas to a windows 7 machine.
I am using ibm ltfs 2.2 tool to format the media to ltfs. It works and I copied more than 1tb of data just fine, only to realize that it is using compression. DPX sequences for instance come out some 20% smaller in size than they are. Sadly my clients want no compression.
I read compression is enabled by default in the ibm tool, and can`t seem to find a way to disable it when formatting. BTW I am using the command promt to format as the gui or right click tools donĀ“t seem to work for some reason. Does anybody know a way I can format with compression disabled?
Thanks a lot for your time
