    Hi All


    I am running V11 SP15 soon to upgrade to SP16. Is there a way to delete a library with deleting the Storage policy? All the data has aged off, and the is not dedubplicatied.

    Hi ColumbiaSC

    If all the Backups has aged out from the Storage Policy, it should be safe to remove the Disk Library (as this is not Deduplicated Data). However if the Disk Library does consist of any Deduplicated Data, Commvault will not allow you to remove the Library as these reference could be used by other Backups 

    If you are experiencing issue with deletion please share a screenshot of the error.

    On the library I would look at the associations tab.  Take note of all the policy/policy copies.

    Re-associate each of the policy/policy copes to a different library.

        To re-associate the policy copies, find the Storage policy, R-Click the policy copy... Properties

            Select the Datapath tab.  Add new datapath, and delete the old data path

    After all associations are gone you should be able to delete the old unused library.
