Description

Media Label

Shows the media label that was assigned automatically by Backup Exec, or that was assigned or changed by the administrator, or that was a pre-assigned bar code label.

You can edit the media label, which is limited to 32 characters. Editing the label changes the name of the media in the display, but does not write the new label to the media until an overwrite operation occurs. When you edit a media label, try to make it a concise identifier that will remain constant even when the media is reused. You should write this media label on a label fixed to the outside of the physical media.

Duplicate labels can be automatically generated. For example, reinstalling Backup Exec or bringing media from another Backup Exec installation could cause duplication in labels. Duplicate labels are allowed, but not recommended.

If a bar code is available, and a bar-code equipped device is used, then the media label automatically defaults to that bar code.

Media #

Indicates the order of the media in the backup set.

Creation Date

Shows the date and time when the media was first entered into Backup Exec.

Allocated Date

Shows the date and time when the media was added to a media set as a result of an overwrite operation.

Modified Date

Shows the date and time when data was last written to the media.
