You mean sometimes it happens that there are more than two full backups in given directory that haven't been copied yet to tape mediums by file to tape job, and you want to copy only the latest file, right?
With 14 restore points, the backup repository will have a minimum of (3) and a maximum of (4) full backup VBK files in it at any given time. I cannot fit the entire repository on a single LTO-5 tape, which is what I want to use because no one is around on weekends to swap out multiple tapes. So when I run a semi-monthly tape backup using files-to-tape, I have a script that copies only the latest VBK file to another directory and then runs an unscheduled tape backup job which copies that directory to tape. It works just fine, but having an option that would let me schedule a files-to-tape job that goes to the backup repository itself and only copies the latest VBK file to tape would prevent the extra steps of having to copy that latest VBK to a new directory using a script...and then running the tape job.
If this is not possible, it isn't a big deal. My script already does the job fine. Thanks.
