Hi,
I've been using Bexec for the past  8 years,   the Catalog Folder is not taking  8GB of space. Iwould like to remove old catalogs, in order to clear up some space.  Is it safe to erase  some of them?

C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Backup Exec\NT\Catalogs

It all depends on your rotation.  Catalogs are only helpful if the disk/media for the catalog has not been since overwritten.  If the media has been overwritten since the catalog was made, then, yes, it is perfectly viable to remove the old catalog for the media.  Just remember to keep your catalog's for all backup jobs that have current media.
