5 1 0:Changing Data Size Units

From SEPsesam

Welcome to the latest SEP sesam documentation version 5.1.0 Apollon. For previous documentation version(s), check documentation archive.


You can change the default setting for the data size units, which are specified with either decimal (KB, MB, GB, TB) or binary prefixes (KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB).

Setting the default data size unit

SEP sesam allows you to choose how your data size should be displayed (e.g, in TiB or TB). In previous SEP sesam versions, the data size was always displayed using decimal units.

  1. Open the GUI and from the menu bar select Configuration then Defaults.
  2. Click the Display Format tab (previously Data displays) and from the drop-down list Default data size select decimal or binary prefix.

Setting a different data size unit for the individual table

It is possible to change the data size units for each individual table, for example, in the context window Backups, Restores, Last Backup State, etc. This setting is only applied to the displayed data size in the individual table and is reset to the default data size when the user interface is closed.

  1. Open the target context window, e.g., Main Selection -> Job State-> Backups, select the Data Size column header and right-click it.
  2. From the Unit menu, select the preferred decimal or binary unit display.
