Question Windows Backup Utility Shows full but DAT72 not full

Windows Backup Utility shows it's full when I'm backing up about 43GB of Data on my local and networked drives. Local data is 11GB. Network drives are in RAID 5 (Linux Samba) and show 32.8 GB.

I'm backing up to a DAT72 Tape Drive that is 36GB uncompressed, 72GB compressed. I set Compression on, I'm doing Copy mode. It has been copying fine for the past 4 months. Why does it show that it's full now?

Another side question. My network drives all show 32.8GB of usage. Why? They're different folders in /user folder (samba).

If anyone can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I checked the switches and jumpers. Software and Hardware Compression is enabled.
