If the backup sets on a disk-based storage device expire while that device is detached, the catalogs for those backup sets are deleted. To restore from any backup sets, you must run an inventory and catalog operation on the device when you reattach it. When you run the inventory and catalog operation, Backup Exec sets a new expiration date for each backup set by using the backup set's original retention setting, calculated from the current date. The expiration date is also reset for any backup set on the storage device that expires within seven days of the current date.
If you want the backup sets to expire, you can disable the storage device property Limit Backup Exec to read-only operations. Do not run an inventory and catalog operation. Backup Exec reclaims the disk space on that storage device during data lifecycle management. You can also delete the backup sets.
