    Are there any settings for optimizing backups of large files?


    Using windows file agent, servers & medaiagents all have 10gb nic and writing to a LTO7 tape library.

    About 2.5 TB of data it's only 86 files with one of those files being 1.1Tb. Performance is acceptable now but in most of my backups not doing large files like this wasn't sure if there are some settings withing CV to optimize large file backups.

    Generally increasing the tape block size used for backups will increase the tape backup performance. This can be set on the data path properties of the Storage policy-> Copy.
