Question About StorageWorks RDX tape usage


I have in the couple of days installed my first storageworks RDX 160gb drive, and i am using the HP RDX Continuous Data Protection Software.

Now my questions is the following, what happens when one of the drives becomes full? Does it automatically overwrite old files, or do i have to manually empty the drive?

The reason im asking is because i installed and setup the first drive afther i installed windows sbs 2008, but i left the 160gb disk in the drive the first days, and now i got a message on this disk that its full.

Is this normal? C: drive is about 40/50gb. No other drives.

Best Regards
