BackupExec Media settings for B2D and LARGE backup jobs - HELP!

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
I'm running Symantec BackupExec 12D to a 1U removable backup to disc solution (Idealstor TeraLyte, 2-bay drive).  Most jobs run fine, however when I run my big file server backup job, which is about 800GB (the drive it's backing up to is 1.3TB), it always stops around the 60GB mark and queues me to insert overwritable media......I can not figure out how to simply make this entire 1.3TB drive permanently overwritable, at least for now so I can get a full backup done!  Thanks.
