I have a job I created to backup a users folder each night. I would like the backup to run each night until the tape is full. Its a 2TB tape. When it gets around 59GB it switching to overwrite operation with a meesage of no appendable media could be mounted. Then I get media is over write protected and can't get any more backups on the tape. Why is that happening and can I save a users folder over and over again until the tape is full? Thank you for any help.
