Re: Networker 8.2 :: although deleting the expired saveset manually, Disk Space not decreased

> Check if the disk volume has the "scan needed" flag. If yes, you'll need to change it (right click on volume -> Mark Scan Needed -> Scan is Not needed -> OK). Then, you can run nsrim -X to recover space.

The "scan needed" flag is set by NetWorker because it believes there are valid savesets that are on the volume that is not in the media database.  For this reason, it is not a good idea to disable this flag without further investigation, otherwise you can cause data loss.

Better to perform the scan using "scanner -m (device name)".  Once scan is completed, you can then remove the flag, and then review what is on the volume.
