6GB of 375GB tape used but will not append to it
I have a tape library with 25 tapes in it. We do a nightly full backup of our system using 4 diferent jobs. The append period is infinant and they all have a 4 week overwrite protection period. A lot of the tapes in my library are only partially used sometimes as little as 6GB are used. However, it will not append to these tapes, it sits there asking for a new tape to be inserted. What is going on? Why is it not appending to the free space on these tapes?
Here is a picture of what I am talking about:
This morning it was sitting there asking for a tape, so I just drug a full one over to scratch media. Thats why you see one tape in use.
