HP RDX drives Windows SBS 2011

We have been using Symantec Backup Exec 2012, it cannot overwrite the MS Exchange data on the cartridge when it does a nightly backup and as a result the RDX fills up and then no backup occurs.

Can anyone recommend some better mainstream software that they have used with SBS 2008 and an RDX drive that will just work full backup every night?

BackupAssist works with the RDX drives.

I use the native SBS2011 backup, buty with external USB connected drives rather than RDX.

there is no technical reason that symantec cant overwrite the exchange backup on the RDX drive so look at your symantec setup/job config and resolve the issue instead of replacing the backup software.

We have spent at least 50 hours on the phone to Symantec support and they cannot fix it.

Can you high light the ticks that should do it, it is the Exchange feature that does not seem to wipe and slowly fills the drive.
