Hello All,

I am running Backup Exec 9.1. I seem to have an ever growing list of old backups in my restore window that I'm not sure how to get rid of. I run a full Backup on the weekend and differential backups during the week. But I've noticed that there are a few that just don't seem to overwrite.

I'm not sure how to expunge the offending jobs. I'm wondering if I just do a Catalog on my tape drive, it will clear it up for me. Or is there a way I can just go in and remove them.

I've included a capture of the restore windows. As you can see there are some very old jobs in there that for some reason aren't getting overwritten.


Thanks
Eric
