Tape capacity is not displayed correctly.

Created: 06 Sep 2012 | 3 comments

I use BE 2012, no matter how much data I write to my tape (Quantum DLT-S4) it shows the capacity full free. A tape is 745 GB and I have 152 Gb data on it, still it shows the avilable space 745. I tried inventory, erase and clean drive still no sucess. Please help!

Was the 152 GB written by this isntall of BE 2012?  Or from some other system/version?

Have you catalogged the tape?
