Specify to read to the end of the tape

From the Load Job Select window, you can specify to read from the tape until the end of the device with the Write/read to/from tape until end of device check box. When a tape device is empty, you are prompted to provide a new tape, until the load job is complete.

Important: If you select this option, you must also select it when unloading from the Unload Job window, or specify the -Z option from the command line; otherwise, the loaded and unloaded data might be inconsistent.
If you check this check box, it supersedes any tape size information you enter in the Device-Array Definition window or at the command line.
Important: You must provide the same tapes in the same order on the same devices for both the unload jobs and the load jobs to ensure consistency.
