Backup Exec 10, deleting all media, starting over from scratch

We inherited a Backup Exec 10 software package on this new network we took over.  Along with the BU Exec, we have an Exabyte VXA drive/library.

In BU Exec, I'd like to "start over" by getting rid of existing media, media sets, etc.

My questions is, absent an uninstall/reinstall, is there some way to restore BU Exec to it's default install state, with no media, no media sets?  I'd like to keep my device and library, but I want all of the existing media to go away.

I was looking for a config file or something I could delete that would make BU Exec think there was no existing media or media sets.

Thanks

Cliff

well if i understand your question right when i was on the phone with veritas for a problem I had, we shutdown backup exec services, and then in the veritas folder emptied the catalog folder, that cleared what media it knew about, then we invidiually also deleted the media sets that were showed, and b2d media, deleted b2d folders and we were set
