Your answer is in the NBU Vault Admin Guide.

If you don't want to read manuals, wait and see what happens.

My guess is that it will do what you have selected in the profile!

will it suspends all the medias from the day it runs to 3 days earlier which are in the library?

When you use the Suspend Media for the Next Session option on the profile Eject tab to suspend all media on which backups were written within the 0 to 3 days and then vault only those backups that are older than 3 days. No more backup images are written to that media, and that media is ready to be ejected.
 

Only use the Suspend Media for the Next Session option if you eject original backup media and want to avoid vaulting partial images.
You should carefully consider whether to use the Suspend Media for the Next Session option. It uses extra CPU cycles because it queries all of the databases again and applies all of the Choose Backups filters again, prolonging the length of time that is required to suspend the media. Therefore, some partial images on vaulted media may be acceptable. If you use this option, it is possible that the
original backup media vaulted will not be full.

OTR

I was hoping that noazara would respond by now and tell us what the outcome was....

@ontherocks:

When you use the Suspend Media for the Next Session option on the profile Eject tab to suspend all media on which backups were written within the 0 to 3 days and then vault only those backups that are older than 3 days. No more backup images are written to that media, and that media is ready to be ejected.

so when my vault will run

  1. it will pick all backups media  from now till the previous date given?
  2. and will suspend all those media from now to defined  date?
  3. If that media has space ,than also no data will be written?Am I correct?

You have configured Vault on the 4th of July.
This means that your vault has been running for 5 days now.
You are therefore the best person to tell us what the result is of your configuration.
If your question was purely theoretical, you are well aware that we don't answer these kind of questions. We will not hesitate to lock this discussion.
Please let us know if you have a real issue.
