New-VBRFileToTapeObject size

Post by Peejay62 » Nov 06, 2019 4:28 pm

I am creating a script for a FileToTape backupjob and want to feed a selection of files to be processed into that job. I see I can create an object with New-VBRFileToTapeObject. I first wonder how many objects I can feed into it. This job will be generated on a daily basis in order to backup a set of specific, unique set of files to tape, so everyday the FileToTapeObject will be different with approximately 5000 entries. So, before I start I'd like to now if VBRFileToTapeOBject can hold at least 5000 entries..

thanks,

Don't remember us implementing any thresholds there, so, you should be OK with feeding 5000 entries to VBRFileToTapeJobObject. Thanks!

Ok, thanks for the info. Just aside, will there ever be a possibility/do you see a use case to add a more advanced selection criteria for files? What I mean is when creating the job (by gui) in the advanced selection I can wildcard and include/exclude, something like "creationdate" or "olderthan" would be very nice though. The missing of such options is the main reason I have to start scripting in the first place.thanks.

Certainly not the most popular demand, so, currently it doesn't have priority among other awaiting features. In other words, this is not in our short-term bucket. Thanks!
