We are running Veeam 18.104.22.1681.
We seem to have an issue with the way Veeam decides whethether to overwrite a tape or not.
According to Veeam support, Veeam will NEVER overwrite a tape if it isn't 100% full.
Imagine my tape sizes are 400 gigabytes, and my backup is 350 gigabytes. It will always (some day) append on that tape, and then it appends 50 gigabytes, and asks for a new tape.
My logic isn't flawed here right? i did understand this correctly ?
In my opinion, overwriting of tapes which don't hold an overwrite protection anymore (due to the settings of the mediaset), is mandatory.
I've seen some more topics around this issue, and people were talking about a script which would clear the tape before the Veeam job starts.
Can someone share my a script which does just that ?
