I'm having some problems with my backup. It's acting strange. Even that I have a lot of over writable items in Media Sets and manages to backup some stuff it fails for other.

Backup- D:Storage device "Backup-to-Disk Folder 0001" reported an error on a request to write data to media. Error reported: Not enough space. V-79-57344-34034 - An attempt to write data past the end of the media has failed. Verify- D: RAID 10An inconsistency was encountered on the storage media in Backup-to-Disk Folder 0001. V-79-57344-33994 - The data being read from the media is inconsistent.

Clearly I don't have space on that drive but that is only because Symantec fills it up till it's full. But then it has lots of reusable overwritable items that it should be able to reuse.

This doesn't directly answer your question but may be an alternate solution for you. I've never had any luck getting BE to overwrite B2D file so I run a batch file that deletes them after they've been backed up to tape. If I need to restore data from the B2D files I restore them first, then the data from them.
