Clear will not change the size of the file, it merely writes over the top of it.

0.5TB may not show much of a percentage change if you're dealing with petabytes. 😊

How did you check your percentage? DSPSYSSTS? Are your image catalogs in the system ASP? If not then DSPSYSSTS won't show them.

When you look at the size are you using WRKLNK? What are the values for both of these?
Size of object data in bytes
Allocated size of object . .

Subject: Clear virtual tape?

We have a virtual tape that we don't use anymore, so I want to clear it to
free the disk space. Before I started, /ImageCatalog/tape/backup/GEN001
was showing a size of 576560259233. I did an INZTAP command, and GEN001 is
now showing 12289. The ironic part is that my disk usage percent didn't
change at all.

Any ideas? Think it would help to delete that GEN001 and recreate?

TIA
