Managing media pools

After configuring your libraries, you can configure your media pools. Before creating a new media pool, you should answer the following questions:

What media types are available in your Removable Storage system?

Should media be automatically drawn from a free media pool when there are not sufficient media in an application media pool? (It is recommended that you implement this configuration.)

Should media be automatically returned to a free media pool when they are no longer needed by an application?
