Symantec Backup Exec wont use Scratch Media

I have Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R3 with 3 Backup to Disk folders 1.5TB each in a Drive Pool.

Low Disk Space Threshold is not enabled. Recently I filled all drives in the poop to within kb of free space on each.

With the overwrite protection as I have it jobs could not continue as no new media could be created and existing media could not be re-used.

I moved all media into the scratch media set. Shouldn't this allow my jobs to continue, re-using existing media?

In options I have "Overwrite recyclable media before scratch media" as recommended for backup to disk devices.

All backup to disk folders are sporting the "low disk space" warning.

After waiting about 5 minutes Backup Exec started to reclaim space. And backups started processing. I guess patience would have fixed this one... :)

"Begin processing to reclaim space from expired media.
Reclaiming space from expired GRT media"
