Backup Exec 2012 targets backup jobs to the disk with the LEAST free space in a disk storage pool. This is a severe problem for GRT jobs, which cannot span to another disk in the disk pool. When a GRT job fills up the DISK it is targeted to, Backup Exec asks you to import overwriteable media into the ROBOTIC TAPE LIBRARY (please fix this too) so the job can continue!. The only way to get these jobs to run successfully is to remove all the disks from the storage pool that are nearly full - which defeats the purpose of having a storage pool. Clearly, Backup Exec should target GRT backup jobs to the disk with the MOST free space in the disk storage pool.
