Moving Media (Operations > Move Media)
This option instructs the library to move a cartridge from a tape drive, a tape slot in any magazine
or the mailslot in the left magazine to any other location not already holding a tape. This option
also lets you load and unload tape cartridges to and from the installed tape drives. To use this
command, you must first select where you want to move the tape from (in one of the Source
fields), and then indicate where you want to move the tape to (in one of the Destinations fields).
Source Type: This toggles between all available sources: mailslot, magazines, and the active
drives.
Source -> Source by Label: If appropriate, this toggles between available source cartridges. In
the following example, the source type is a magazine, so you need to select a cartridge from the
magazine. You can do this by selecting a specific slot (Source field) or specifying the target
cartridge's barcode (Source by Label field). Only Full source slots are available for selection.
Destination Type: This toggles between all available destinations: Mailslot, Magazine and Drive.
Destination: If appropriate, this option allows you to specify the cartridge destination. For a
magazine, select a slot. Only Empty destination slots are available for selection.
