> True, but it's rather tough to do hardware compression on a save file.

There are various areas where I do saves to a save file just prior to some
big batch update process.  I also do a SAVLIB twice a day of our main
database library to 2 different save files, then put these 2 save files 
onto
a single tape.

After you posted your message last week about the new options on the 
DTACPR
parm, I changed all these to *HIGH.  Since Friday, my disk usage has gone
from ~70% to ~52%.  And no one has complained about performance. <g>

The opinions expressed are my own and not necessarily the opinion of my
company.  Unless I say so.
