    Assisted Solution

    There is no option to erase media prior to backup. Just set it to overwrite.

    Accepted Solution

    You have 2 options...

    A. Create a script and setup a Windows Task to run before the time of your backup.

    B. Create a script and append it to the pre command in the job so it will run before the jobs runs.

    I would opt for B.

    Here are the instructiouns to create that script using the bemcmd command line utility.
