Overwrite protection.

I cant figure this out.

I use Backup Exec 2010.

Backut Exec consistently refuses to reuse tapes claiming the tapes are overwrite protected. Then it ejects the tapes and asks for an overwritable media to be inserted.

This happens with almost all the tapes we have.

I formatted the tapes, deleted them from the database, disabled overwrite ptotection in the BE options, disabled overwrite protection in the media pool. I run an inventory with the tape in, I manually put the discovered tape into the scratch media pool. The tape show as overwritable before the job starts.

Then I start the job, it monts the tape, and immediately ejects the tape asking for an overwritable media.

This is getting ridiculous, and extremely frustrated.
