I use BE9 with an Auto-loader that holds 7 DDS4 tapes, and I'm having a
problem with backup jobs appending to overwritable media that has some
appendable space left on it. The result being overwrite periods are
effectively being extended because of the typically small amount of data
appended to the end of the tape. All my jobs are set to append if possible
and overwrite if needed. This is so tapes are used to capacity as much as
possible. I would like for jobs to overwrite a tape if the tape is
overwritable even if there is some appendable space available.
Alternatively, it would also work if the tape was considered full, or out of
appendable space, when only a certain amount of estimated space is left on
it. Is there a way to do that?

Thanks in advance,
