Error: Cannot find any appendable volumes

Hello Experts!

I have small problem with backup system BACULA (Version: 2.2.8). I keep getting messages Cannot find any appendable volumes. Those messages start to appear when bacula fills up hard disk to 100%.

How do I have to configure bacula DIR, so it could automatically recycle volume?

Please use the "label"  command to create a new Volume for:
    Storage:      "FileStorage" (/backup/bacula)
    Pool:         sagittarius-pool

2 days you use full backup. Maybe you should only do a full on monday. (I guess if you do a full backup twice while your retention period is a week, you'll end up with 2 full backups...)
