Expired media not being deleted

Level 3

I am backing an Exchange server to a local volume.  I run full backups on the weekend, then incremental during the week.  In the backup savesets there are a number of save-sets that have expired that are not being removed by the DLM.  They are blue and marked expired.  I can highlight those save-sets and expire them manually (even though they are already expired) and then the DLM will remove them from the list and the volume.

In my backup jobs, I have an automatic duplicate to tape. The disk media is set to expire in 2 weeks, while the tape expires in 3.

The specifics of my system are as follows:  Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64 bit.  Backup Exec 2014, SP1.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?

It sounds like you are still facing the issue that was to be resolved with SP1 (   Since it looks like you have already installed it, try recreating the job.

Thank you, I will try that.  Will be back in two weeks to let you know.
