In Backup Exec 2010 I had the ability to modify/delete selection details of a backup set. I know longer have Backup Exec 2010.  I have included a picture of the Backup Exec 2010 feature.

new known issue 11 Jul 2014

'. This is a display issue in the install log only and will not affect the operation of Backup Exec 2014.
