Backup Exec Failed Backup Job - how to erase media?

Last Modified: 2013-12-01
Using Backup Exec 12.  If I have a backup-to-disk job that fails due to lack of disk space, is there a way for me to tell backup exec to erase only the media (i.e. the files on the disk) used solely for that backup job without erasing any other backups?  I want to reclaim the space used by the failed backup so that I can run it again, but there doesn't seem to be any easy way to do this.
