how to not waste space?

Post by ferjero989 » May 03, 2018 1:37 pm

i got a end of the month tape job to send all backups there for archiving out of site.
this library has 2 drives, so paralel procesing makes sense (to finish the job faster)
however as you can see the last 2 drives are not full. so how can i make him fully use all of the tapes so no space is wasted? seems like a media set issue.. if both drives could work on the same media set perhaps this wont happen?

Hello ferjero989.

Please elaborate how media set creation option is configured and if you export tape media upon tape job completion. Thanks.
