    my recent backup uses a lot tapes and the content is very small and some not up to 500GB. It is waste. May i know anyway to consolidate the data into one tape?

    Have you enabled the option from the Storage Policy level Properties?

    Are the media needing to be refreshed marked as Full?

    Regards

    Can share with me step by step how to do it?

    Using media refresh, it won't cause any data loss right? All data will be copied to one tape right?

    Are you setting your stream for the refresh to 1?
