Backups to Tape & Files to Tape

I'm looking at setting up tape jobs in Veeam. I want to copy all my Veeam backups to tape but I also want to copy some critical files that sit on our NAS over into the same set of tapes. Is there a way to do this?

If you use the same tape media pool for the jobs, and you set it up to not automatically create a new media set when you set it up I think it will put everything on the same batch of tapes.

You would want to make sure the Backup to Tape and File to Tape jobs were not running at the same time.

If you want for the files and backups to reside on the same tape, one file to tape job pointed to one media pool will be needed.

Two jobs running against one media pool will allow you to use the same set of tapes(available within given media pool) regardless of media set creation options.

Thanks.
