Error 3251

Severity Level 10
Message Text

The media family on device '%ls' is complete. The device is now being reused for one of the remaining families.


The restore operation allows a media set to be restored with fewer physical devices than were used to create it. This message means that the restore operation has completely processed the media family on the named device, and is now ready to reuse the device to restore one of the remaining media families in the media set.


Remove the volume from the named device and insert the first volume of a media family that has not yet been processed.
