How to remove media

Hello experts

I am using Backup exec 2010 R3, and I created followings 5 "Backup-to-Disk folders" for full backup.
Mon, Tue, Wed, Thr,Fri, to back up data from disk to disk.
Configure Devices > Backup-to-Disk Folder  

I have taken full backup of each day, and now I want to change the policy and
want to delete Mon , Tue, Wed 's folders.

How can I do this ? How can I get rid of  folders as media of Backup exec ?

The best way to do that would be as follows (assuming all the backups made to those media can be deleted):
* In the devices tab, highlight the "B2D folder" you want to remove. In the right pane, you should see all the "Media" (B2Dxxxxxxx) that are in this folder. Highlight all of them (CTRL-A) to select all, and then right-click inside the selection and choose "Associate with Media Set" from the context menu. Choose to associate with the "retired media", media set.
* Do the same for the other "B2D folders" you want to delete.
* Go to the "Media" tab and highlight the "Retired Media" media set. In the right pane, highlight all media (CTRL-A), then right-click and choose delete from the menu.
* Go back to the "Devices" tab and right-click the B2D folders you want to delete and choose delete. If you have jobs that specifically target these folders, you will get a prompt to retarget the jobs. Choose the target destination you want.
* Close Backup Exec and physically delete the Mon, Tue and Wed folders on the file system.
