Backup Exec 15 does not consider overwritable media in storage capacity

Hi,

I'm having a small issue with the Backup Exec storage screen. As shown below, the capacity of the tape library is reported as almost full:

 

 

However, the media in the tape library is now outside of it's protection period and is marked as overwriteable:

 

 

 

Should Backup Exec not see this overwritable media as available capacity?

I should also mention that backups are running to tape correctly, it would just be nice to see usable capacity accurately on the storage screen, rather than having to drill down into the 'Slots' screen.

  • We report on used vs unused space and not write protected vs overwritable + unused space and as far as I know always have reported the capacity details in this way.

      Ok that makes sense then. Would it be possible request this is added as a configurable option?
