Wrong media problems

I have a customer who has 3 tapes for their tape drive.
They have HP data protector express.

I want to setup a scheduled backup that will do a full backup when run each week day.

I have become confused with the rotation and media sets concept.

Can anyone walk me through the wizard assume all media has been erased?

Re: Wrong media problems

With those few tapes I suggest setting up "No media rotation".
That means that the system will take whatever tape is offered.

Use the calendar view to set up the weekly backup, (or daily and remove all those that you don't need/want)

Now when the backups start going, you'll see the new tapes coming in and after a few weeks get reused automatically.
