I have the following problem, if I want to overwrite tapes that are being ejected owing to them being protected. How do I reclassify them using. i.e.Erase and or allow overwrite. Do I use Removeable storage tool or backup device tool or Veritas application. Also If I want to get data on the tape from date created, media name and objects or jobs on the tape how do I catalogue same (i.e.I have no idea what the tape contains and it is unmarked but used). Thanks I know there are a few questions in there but if I can get answers to all that would be great! pjs

Veritas have two backup products, BackupExec and NetBackup, guessing you're using BE then the overwrite protection is set on the media set, not individual tapes. Windows removable service should be disabled as it can get in the way of BE if you have a library.
