Everything about backing up to tape

I`ve talked to R&D guys and it turned that having the feature we are talking about many users accidentally deleted their restore points and contacted support team to get them back.
In general the request seems sane, but how often do you need to delete the restore point manually?
Thanks!

I don't think that it is better to delete restore point files manually in file system. The risk to destroy something is higher. If the restore points could be deleted via GUI, Veeam could automatically warn the user if a chain gets destroyed e.g.

So with V9 it is not possible to get Veeam running again (without deleting files in the file system or without deleting all backups), if the disk is full one time?

Let`s count that as a feature request which is taken into account.

By get Veeam running again do you mean backup job? Datastore has to have space for snapshot creation, so if datastore is full backup job will not finish successfully. It`s recommended to use Veeam ONE for being notified of the low space.
