This issue has been solved. See solution.

One more thing, whats the best way to go about implementing a new backup routine.  I want to delete what's in Backup Exec and start fresh but don't want to lose the backups that are already there - just in case.

I remember reading about a database/catalogue tool where you can reset the data, should I first make a copy of my existing backup files to other storage area and a copy of the program file/backup exec etc folder

Then run this tool?

You can start afresh by going to the BE installation directory and use the BEUtility tool.

1) Use BEUtility to dump the BEDB.  Keep the BEDB.bak file in the Data directory under the BE installation directory save.

2) User BEUtility to get a fresh copy of BEDB and you would have wiped out your existing configuration.

3) You would need to inventory existing media so that BE is aware of them.  If necessary, catalog them again.
