Also I found out an other problem: When in Bareos GUI shows expired volume, the volume is not been removed from the hard dirk partition such as /var/backup/bareos.
How can I configure bareos to remove old tapes from /var/backup/bareos that is consistend with the retention period?

No way. Only manual
Its a feature request or make own script
