Owing to issues with network and Cloud we are having to use Tape Media as 2ary storage (offline).  I would like to have 3 media pools:  Daily, Monthly and Annual. Can someone remind me how to assign scratch media to the new media groups ?  I am trying to separate backup sets based on retention.

Help appreciated.

Hey @AlfredMJ 

Take a look at the documentation link below, this will work you through ‘moving media between scratch pools’.

Once media is assigned to a scratch pool, the media will return there after its contents age out.
