Database cleanup isn't my strong suit, but I believe you're looking at
possible problems here. The only place tape media is really set to
correspond to active images is in the imageDB files. If no active images
show up for an assigned tape, won't it get removed from the media server's
mediaDB and set to unassigned in volDB, and setup to be written over again,
when a cleanup session is run?
I wonder what would happen if you just removed the .f files and left the
info files, since the .f ones are the guys taking up a lot of the room?
Something to look into.
