Issues with a C7972A 400GB tape: I observed that when the backup size reaches over 250GB, the tape starts giving an error that it cannot complete the backup. Is there a limitation on how much data can...

This tape is 200GB with no compression, up to 400GB with compression assuming 2:1 compression ratio. The compression ration is dependent on the type of file e.g. an MP3 file will not compress much, nor will a ZIP or JPG file, but BMP, DOC, TIFF will compress well. In my experience it is best to assume worst case and calculate for no compression i.e. assume max capacity of 200GB.

What is the life time of 400 / 800 GB Data Cartridge for LTO Ultrium 3 Tape ?

The life expectancy for LT03 tape media is 30 years if kept in the proper storage environment (cool and dry). BTW StorageTek warranties LTO media for as long as you own the media and store it within the specified parameters.

Ideal conditions are 60 degrees F and 20% relative humidity. Note a 10% change in either temperature or humidity will shorten the lifespan by 50%
