Hi

On previous versions of backup exec you could cancel multiple pending backup jobs ie in case jobs got stacked up because the tape drive was unavailable or you had ran out of disk space..... but now we purchase the 2012 version this functionality is no longer available.

instead we now have to wait for each backup task to start and then manually cancel each one. this takes a very long time if you have a large number of backup jobs.

The other option is to reschedule the backups to start from a future date but this is just as labour intensive because you have to edit each job.

Please addin the ability to select all backup jobs that are pending\linked and a cancel button to cancel them all whether they have started or not.
