We have just migrated to a new server with a fresh install of Backup Exec 2010 R3.  We have a number of tapes from the older server but I am not onsite so cannot easily do an inventory on all of them.

We run nightly full backups at this site.  Is there a way to configure the backup jobs such that if a  new tape is detected in the drive for the media to be added to a specified media set and the backup runs overwriting the tape without need for interaction?
