Media Properties (General)

Use this dialog box to view the hardware and configuration information about a media.

Barcode

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.)

Identifier

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.

Product Info

    The unique ID generated by the MediaAgent for the media when the media was imported and discovered.

  • Currently in Library

    The name of the library in which the media resides.

  • Last Written in Library

    • 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.
