I am new to Veeam and am getting around how the tape backup works. Previously I was using Backup Exec to back up my data on a tape for each day of the week (Monday to Thursday) and then revolving Friday tapes and monthly tapes. This was pretty simple to understand.
I am wanting to replicate this sort of backup routine in Veeam. I have backup jobs that go to a NAS box complete with incrementals and from there I would like to then take this data to tape each night and formatting the tape prior to the nightly backup taking place.

Currently I have a backup job going to the NAS box as normal incrementals. I only want to have one full backup daily on each tape. There will be a tape for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and several Friday ones and these will be overwritten each week. I have also been looking into the option of using reverse incremental backups and just taking the full backup that it appends to and putting that on tape.
