CA Arcserve - FSD format after drive full

I have an external hard drive that I am backing up to with Arcserve 11.5 SP4. I have two jobs going to this device, a Mon-Thurs Incremental and a Friday Full. Everything is fine until the drive space is used up and then the CA software formats the media to start the next job. I would like to set this up so that it deletes the oldest files to make room instead of just formatting the entire device and destroying all my backed up data- in need of configuration assistance.
1 Solution
setup a FSD for each day's backup
1 fsd = 1 tape
use Rotation job
add all fsd to media pool
configure media pool to retain and reuse the media as you would like
