Issue/Introduction

Are CA View tapes ever recycled, to remove unused space? 

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA View

Resolution

The "recycling" of the View tapes takes place, first, with running the SARPAC function.

SARPAC writes only the active reports to a new tape, bypassing expired reports.
The tapes out of SARPAC all have only active reports on them. 

When a View backup runs after the SARPACing of the tapes, the older tapes will be expired, as they no longer contain active reports.
