Can't free space in LTO tape in Data Protector

After a backup operation which filled a LTO tape, we changed the data protection of some objects to "none" in order to reuse the tape, but when we go to "Devices & Media" in DP Manager to check the tape usage, it still shows 100% used.

If we try to make a new backup operation on that tape, a "mount request" message is issued.

Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.
