Use this dialog box to view the hardware and configuration information about a media.
The number displayed on the barcode label of the media, if the library is configured as a sighted library. (Sighted library is a library with a barcode reader.)
A user definable label for the media, if the library is configured as a blind or stand-alone library. (Blind library is a library without a barcode reader.). The label can be changed at any time without affecting the ability to backup or restore.

- Currently in Library
The name of the library in which the media resides.

The current location of the media. If necessary, you can change the location when the media is exported from the library.
- If the media is inside the library, this field displays the storage slot or the Drive Name in which the media resides.
- If the media is outside the library and you entered a location when you exported it (e.g., Shelf 4 in Storage Room), that location is displayed here. Note that the MediaAgent system has no control over media once they leave the library; it is your responsibility to ensure that exported media are stored in the location entered.
- If the media is outside the library and was moved using a Tracking Policy, the name of the destination (library or location) is displayed.
- Previously Exported to
Displays the name of the export location, if the media was previously exported and then imported back in to the library.
