Hello Luk,

    With BE 2012 you need to set the retention time (for how much duration the backups needs to be protected) in the backup job when the backups are going to disk. Ones that period is passed the medias are expired and the next backup with overwrite the jobs.

 In BE 2012 there is a new feature called Data Life-cycle Management (DLM) which is used to manage the expired (overwritable media).

Here is the link for the BLOG from the Developer giving the details of Data Life-cycle Management (DLM)



Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!
