[Bacula-users] VolStatus changes from APPEND to USED after a restore - is this expected behaviour?

A few days ago I had to restore some files. After the files were restored successfully, the VolStatus (shown by list volumes) of the two tapes that were needed during restore changed from Append to Used. Is this an expected behaviour? Regards Carsten Pache

Hi, I'm seeing what I think is suboptimal behaviour during some testing, maybe one of the Bacula guru's can help/explain what's going on here. I think it might be since the behaviour I want only happens when a job first requests a tape (and what I'm seeking is a way to get it to request

thank much! will try testing with btape. btw, I ran with 20GB maximum file size/2MB max block (see bacula-sd.conf below) and got these results, 20MB/s increase, ran 20 minutes faster, got 50MBs -- now if I can just double the speed I could backup 15TB in about 45/hrs. I don't have that much data
