: How do you turn compression on for a 4/8 tape drive?
: Is it in the software or hardware?

Hardware compression:
It depends if your drive supports compression. In that case it is called hardware compression even if it is done in software in the drive.
Software compression:
It depends if your backup program supports (software) compression.
So all-to-all, it depends on your drive and your backup s/w.
