We are using Backup Exec 10 (fully patched) and need to now do a back-up-to disk project.  I have a 130 gb hd that just holds some pictures - 106 gb free.  I created a b2d folder with 100gb limit and a media set with 50gb limit.  overwrite protection 4 hours, overwrite media, infinite-append.  I need to backup 46gb.  I have tried two different HDs on two different servers and a 60gb eternal drive (50 gb folder).  No matter what I try, I can back up only appx 6gb of data.  Reports says overwrite media, unable to append, media full.  I don't understand why this is happening.  Can anyone shed some light on this?
