Hi,

 The overwrite window of my backup tapes will be expired on sunday, but I want to overwrite them on friday. Hoe can I change the overwrite window for tapes so that it can use the tapes for backup.

Tapes will become overwritable once you move them to scratch media set.

...just erase them. If you chang the media set's properties, then all tapes contained in that media set become overwritable.

Thanks!
