*** A TAPE ERROR OCCURRED: [[writing file: No space left on device]].

*** A TAPE ERROR OCCURRED: [[writing file: No space left on device]].

... I am new to Amanda and did not set it up but I have been digging around to see what it is all about.

The tapes are 25/65 and 35/91. The backup that it is trying to write is 15GB uncompressed. There is plenty of room because it should overwite each time the tape is reused.

Anyone have any ideas??
