"Backups > Tape node" not available

I need to restore files from a file-to-tape job that I did 2 months ago. The veeam user guide says:

Step 1. Launch Full VM Restore Wizard
To run the Full VM Restore wizard, do one of the following:
Open the Home view, expand the Backups > Tape node. Choose and expand the tape backup you need. Select the necessary VMs in the tape backup and click Restore Entire VM on the ribbon.
Open the Home view, expand the Backups > Tape node. Choose and expand the tape backup you need. Right-click the necessary VMs in the tape backup and choose Restore entire VM.

But...in my Home view, under the backups node, I only see disk, disk (copy), and disk (imported). No Tape node.

Why is this missing, and how do I get it back?

Hi bhagen.

To restore specific files from tape you should use Files node. Check this Help Center article: Restoring Files from Tape

Tape node might be hidden:
