Backup Exec 12.0/12.5 not overwriting backups
Hi just wondering if anyone can help me here -
I have 2 servers running backup exec 12.0 SP3 (SBS 2003 SP2) and 12.5 SP3 (SBS 2008 SP2) using external USB drives as removable backup to disk folders.
What seems to be happening is after the first few backups backup exec will stop working at the point of mounting media and will wait for hours until the job is cancelled by the user, resulting in:
V-79-57344-33861 - The media operation was terminated by the user.
Now when I come to take a look at the USB drives they are nearly full and have less space than needed in order to complete a backup; the drives have several old backups on them that were made earlier but they aren't getting deleted. In my backup media set the overwrite protection is set to 0 but my backups just don't seem to be getting overwritten.
