On Monday, I sent the message at the bottom of the page.  I received
several suggestions, the one that I have been using is to do "move data
______".  Of the 500 moves that I have done, virtually all of them have
been successful, which means that these off-site volumes have been
regenerated copies of on-site volumes.  The question then is; why isn't
reclamation working when I set the reclaim=80 of a volume such as this:
               Volume Name: 731529
         Storage Pool Name: DISASTER_RECOVERY
         Device Class Name: VAULT
   Estimated Capacity (MB): 600.0
                     %Util: 0.2
             Volume Status: Filling
                    Access: Offsite
    Pct. Reclaimable Space: 99.8
           Scratch Volume?: Yes
           In Error State?: No
  Number of Writable Sides: 1
   Number of Times Mounted: 1
         Write Pass Number: 1
 Approx. Date Last Written: 08/16/1997 06:45:53
    Approx. Date Last Read: 08/16/1997 06:42:54
       Date Became Pending:
    Number of Write Errors: 0
     Number of Read Errors: 0

When reclamation starts up (and every time it recycles thru the
process), it produces a message about the above volume similarily to the
message shown below?????????????
