Tape is protected by hardware. Case ID: 03713084

Post by habibalby » Aug 14, 2019 10:50 am

Hello,
I have a punch of tapes already expired but it has grayed out lock icon. I'm unable to erase it, when I do inventory, unable to use it at all.

Powershell commands shows the meduim already protected by hardware = True.

Any help?

Thanks

Hi habibalby,
