Sounds like the drive is paused - go to the devices tab, right click on anything that has (paused) against it and un-pause it.

This is quite a common problem with Backup Exec.

I had to uninstall and re-install the device drivers for the tape drive/ library
In the microsoft windows device manager, uninstall the device.
Or you could try to reinstall 9.0 and in the device setup tell it to use the Veritas drivers and not microsoft drivers on the tape device.

Good luck!

<<Monday backup folder>>

So you're doing disk to disk backup? http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/236295.htm should help but it's normally easier to delete the specific B2D folder out of BE, delete the folder contents and recreate a new B2D folder with same name as the other one unless you want to restore from it.
