If you are absolutely sure that this is the only job written to that
specific tape you could purge that volume and recycle it and then
update its status to Append. All of this could be done from the
If there are other jobs on that tape you could copy them to some other
volume before taking the steps I have mentioned above.
Otherwise, AFAIK it is not possible to remove the bytes that belong to
the failed job from the volume using normal bacula procedures.
There is also an option of manual database update but it comes with the
risk of human error and it is generally not recommended.
