    Alex: I think you're missing my point here...you cannot selectively remove data from a backup that is already on tape or disk. You cannot do this. You need to restore the data that exists on tape/disk to a disk location, delete it from there, and then back it up again. Then your data that will now be on a B2D/tape will no longer contain your customer's data.

    If you are thinking about removing it from a backup job, just deselect what you don't need anymore by doing this on your selection list.
