having trouble to backup my Full-Backup Job to Tape every day.
Mo-Fri = every Day Fullbackup to Disk
The current problem is that Veeam want to backup all existing fullbackups to Tape every day, but I want to backup every day to a tape with only the newest fullbackup. I want to backup every day to a tape.
Example: Mo = Tape1 with only the Fullbackup from Monday Tue = Tape2 with only the Fullbackup from Tuesday and so on...

What retention do a backup and backup to tape job have? Am I right in assuming that the backup job always creates a full backup, meaning that each day of week is selected for full backup creation? Also, what settings are specified on media pool? I'm mostly interested in media set and retention settings.

Ok, so you have disk retention longer than tape one, thus, the issue. Due to shorter retention, a backup to tape job tries to copy those backups that have been already deleted from tapes, but are still present on disk. In order to avoid that you can increase retention on media pool.
