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.
