I was wondering if when restoring data from LTO3 tape in a LTO 5 drive if restoring small amounts of data(mb) vs large (G) should take any longer. I did some lab testing doing various restores, since we will be migrating from an LTO3 tape library using Commvault8 to a new Library using LTO5 drives. To restore 200mb took 1.5 hours vs 12G taking 15 minutes. Is this normal?
