    Hi quiz_it,

    You can identify tape media icons using the link below - 



    It is likely that your media is being marked as appendable, which shows a half blue/half yellow icon. Media is marked as appendable when the media being used is no longer available in the library, if the option to mark media as appendable is not selected then media not available would be marked as full. This allows us to ensure that media in the library is always fully utilized.
