Backup Exec protects
allocated and imported media from being overwritten when full or
partial overwrite protection is used. However, if necessary, you
can allow allocated and imported media to be overwritten by Backup
Exec before the data overwrite protection period expires, and
without setting the media overwrite protection level to None.
The following methods are available:
Move the media to Scratch Media. The media is
overwritten when it is selected for an overwrite job.
Erase the media. Erased media is automatically
recognized as scratch media and will be overwritten
Label the media. The Label Media operation
immediately writes a new media label on the media, which destroys
any data contained on the media.
Format the media. Formatting destroys any data
contained on the media.
Change the overwrite protection period for the
media set so that it is expired.
