well, I assume you can create a bconsole script, purging all volumes in
the recycle pool. However, this is not the way Bareos in intended to
work. Another way to separate data in volumes is the option "Max Use
Duration = 23h". So the volume is used for the backups of one day and
afterwards makred "Used".
