Me Too!I have the same issue
Product(s): Backup Exec - 2010, Backup Exec
Severity: Non-data threatening / major functionality
Status: Under construction
Tech Note: More Information

When a job is submitted to run on a Deduplication Storage Folder, the job stays in queued state and "Unknown Media" is generated in the deduplication folder. Job keeps creating "Unknown Media" till the job is canceled.

Note:  It is normal for 10-20 "Unknown" media to get created during a deduplication job.  This issue refers to the creation of 20 or more pieces of "Unknown" media.

Any idea of what to do with the 1000's of Unknown media's that are created? I tried retiring then deleting them, but they just show up again later
