    Normally a backup slows down due to the tape “shoe shining”. Where a dirty tape has to make several passes to write data.

    Check the backup software to see if you have an increase in read / write errors.

    How old are the tapes?

    Have you cleaned the drive with a cleaning tape?

    What OS and what backup software / hardware are you using?
