No new media message

I have been using an HP C5683A tape to back up my server for over 2 years. This week I started getting "No new media" errors on auto schedule backups. The tape sets I have been using were new 12/03 and I had no probles. I changed tapes and it did not resolve. Am I not correct that the backups just overwrite the previous data on each rotation? Why the error? Using windows 2000Server backup software.

Re: No new media message


just a guess. Does the backup software have a parameter how long tapes are to be kept? If so, is it perhaps longer than the number of tapes you have?
