I have tapes that i am only ever going to use once (month end tapes) At the moment I have 6 tapes a month for this purpose. When I remove them from the Dell TL2k library I move them to a veeam vault. But what I was told by support (they tested it) was that if i remove them from the media pool they were backed up in, the tape is also deleted from the vault. So, if that is true.. what is the best way to hide these tapes? I dont really want to keep seeing these tapes as i will likely never have to mount them again, It just clogs things up. I hate to say it, but th way that Backup Exc manages its tapes i quite liked. it would keep the catalogs hidden and it would only show the tapes that you had loaded into the autoloader at any given time. You could go into the set and see the tapes it has if you really wanted but for the most part, the offline ones were hiden... a much simpler and cleaner approach i found.
