Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 // B2D media used for Exchange 2007 Information Store associated to scratch media

Hello,
I am new to Symantec BEWS and I have just created a new Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape backup job copying predefined policy "Duplicate Backup Sets 00001".
BE Media Server is running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 while the Exchange Server is running Windows Server 2008 SP1 with MS Exchange Agent.
Target device for the Disk-to-Disk job is a newly created Backup-to-Disk folder, target media set is a newly created media set with 1 week OPP and 8-hour AP.
Last night the Disk-to-Disk backup job ran the first time and completed successfully without errors. This morning I went through the device and media information section under job history. This section showed "B2D000006", "IMG000004" and "IMG000005" as used media, but how comes that "B2D000006" media belongs to pre-defined Scratch Media set while both "IMG000004" and "IMG000005" belong to the newly created media set according to Template properties ? I know that GRT-enabled backup jobs result in IMG folders being created during job execution, but how comes that media created during the same backup job is associated to different media sets ?
Furthermore how comes that used capacity for that media is not shown under Devices -> Backup-to-Disk folders -> My Backup-to-Disk folder while used capacity for other media under different Backup-to-Disk folders used for normal file backup jobs is displayed ?

Any help is much appreciated.

Have a great day.

Regards, Massimiliano

If you right-click the B2D000006 media and choose the "Restore ..." option, does it show any data on B2D000006? Probably it doesn't.

I think I may have seen Backup Exec do this before. It creates a B2D media before it "realizes" that all resources in the Backup Are GRT resources that need IMG folders. Since the B2D media wasn't really used, it remains in Scratch.
