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
