Question about Dell PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 DLT Tape Drive
80GB is the non compressed and 160GB is fully compressed. Based on my experience youll never get a compression rate of more than 1.5 to 1, so you should expect to get more than 120GB on the tape.
The issue that you are having is that you are using the drivers that either are built into windows or came with the tape drive and not the driver from symantec.
Go into Tools->Wizards->Device Configuration Wizard and follow the step to "Install tape device drivers". This should take care of the compression issue.
