Backup Exec 2012 shows no information about the location of a backup set other than "Disk" or "Tape" in Backup and Restore > Servers. This is extremely frustrating when I am trying to figure out if I have sufficient backup sets of a particular server or if a backup set can be safely deleted. I duplicate backup sets to to removable drives for offsite protection and it is very time consuming to tell if a server has a recent backup set offsite. When I go into a server and select Backup Sets, I need it to show the following information for each backup set:

Type of storage - Disk, Dedupe folder or Tape

Name of the disk storage volume/dedupe folder it is in.

The media label if it is on tape.
