Can't get Backup-To-Disk Offline Media back to Online Media

I have a NAS drive on my backup-to-disk folder and 2/3 of media labels are in Offline Media and 1/3 is in Online Media.

I don't know how they got into Offline Media but I need to get them back into Online Media

the media in the Online Media show a Media Location of 'Backup-to-disk Folder 1'

the media in the Offline Media show nothing in media location.

I'm on Backup Exec 12

Any ideas how to make this space useable again?
