staging off a tape that's still appendable. If the tape is still
appendable when you start the staging, I don't see why NetWorker would
have any reason to expire the tape.
You are absolutely correct. When I gave the command this morning, I was
assuming that the tape was full. If the tape was not full to begin
with, NW won't expire it. I (personally) wouldn't bother moving the
data off a tape that wasn't full.
