Host Server: Windows Server 2012R2 Standard
Virtual Machine: Windows Server 2012R2 Standard
Backup Software: Microsoft DPM 2012 R2
Tape Library: Dell PowerVault tl1000

The issue that we are having is backups seem to be running about: 446 mb/minute. We were getting speeds a LOT faster before we moved over to using the tape redirector. Any suggestions on what we can do to get faster backup speeds?

Hello, Robin.
It is recommended to set MaxTransferLength value as 0x10000.
