I am using Veeam 7 to backup a Hyper-V environment. I need to perform full backups of VMs on tape everyday. Is it possible to delete the backup files created in the repository after the VM backup has been archived on tape?

I think you can control the number of restore points by the retention policy settings. Since you offload full backups every day to tape, you could delete existing files on the next backup job run. What is your current retention policy settings of the backup job?

My issue is that i have 1TB of storage allocated to the repository but I have to backup about 1.4TB of data. The plan is to create 2 Full-Backups per day and have the space release after the first backup completes.

You could use the post-activity script that would trigger the backup to tape job and then clean up the repository after. Don't forget to set the registry key to prevent job failures due to missing backups.
