Backup Exec 2010 and backup to disk on RDX Issue

Last Modified: 2015-09-09

I have a client that has the following configuration:

1. SBS 2011
2. Backup Exec 2010
3. RDX Device with 5 disks 320GB capacity.

I configured backup exec to backup to a folder called "server" on the RDX. On all 5 disks there is a backup folder "server" so in theory no matter which disk is in the device, the backup exec can use it for backup.

BE is configured to always overwrite the media on the drive. The media set is configured to allow overwrite all the time.

The issue is that the client is changing the disk from time to time, so at one point the drive inside the server is 70% full, and the backup job cannot complete. BE does not overwrite the media in the folder.

What I am missing ?

Thank you ;)
