Hi,
We have Backup Exec 12 for windows server; Most of the media says offline.
I would like to reuse the offline media. Please let me know can I reuse it.
Here is the attached file.

Thanks,

These are tapes.  If you are

These are tapes.  If you are using a tape library, put them into the library and inventory the library.  They will then be online and you can use them.  If you are using a stand-alone tape drive, put a tape into the tape drive and do an inventory.  This will make it online and you can use it.

Do note that your tapes are protected infinitely which means that even if they are onine, they cannot be overwritten.  To use them, right-click on them and associate them with the scratch media set.
