Backup Exec 7.3

By mndthegap1 ·
i have an NT server running backup exec 7.3. one of the interns got to it and deleted all the media sets in backup exec. Now i can not run a backup. it cant read the tapes that were used before. Ive tried to erase the tape. the tape shows up as blank media but when you run a backup it doesnt load. i keep getting the error message overwritable media or scratch media can not be overwriten please check the tape again.
please help.

Create a New Media Set, then inventory the drive. There will be a media set called "Imported Media Set", simply drag the tapes from the Imported Media set to your new media set. You may have to play with the Overwrite options on the system to get it to work, but that should be all it takes.
