Stand-Alone Drives - Troubleshooting

Cleaning Stand-Alone Drives


A stand-alone drive indicates that the drive requires cleaning.


You must clean the stand-alone drives manually whenever necessary. The Clean Drive option is not available for stand-alone drives (see Drive Cleaning for more information). However, after cleaning the stand-alone drives manually, you must mark the drive as cleaned as described in Mark a Drive as Cleaned. This resets the counters that keep track of the number of drive events that have occurred since the drive was cleaned.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the appropriate library, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Media Usage tab.
  3. In the Overwrite Media area, select When Content Verification Failed.
  4. Click OK.
