Backup jobs using more tapes than needed
Currently we use veeam to backup our network VMs. After all is said and done it is about 2.4 TB consistently. We use backup exec to write the data to tape. The past few weeks have been the same, but every few days it requires a fifth tape. The tapes we use are 800 GB tapes. When looking at the tapes last night I noticed that the allocation date on the fifth tape was from another job done last week. As far as I knew the tapes would be over written when reused by backup exec. Is there a setting that I am missing that could be making the job grab another tape, but not write anything to it?
