Hello Mr Shestakov,
unfortunately it is not logical: We are not using incremental backup an your colleague has already checked if the option for creating a new media set is turned on. I know, that the case is in German, so I translate it for you:
Good day Mr Haucke,
so, here is the final result, which we have also tested with our QA engineer:
It's by design.
The problem is, that if you choose a directory for a restore, veeam tries to restore ALL files from this directory - even those who have been deleted.
To do this veeam searches in the DB, what files where in the folder and then, after the restore is prepared, it restores the following list:
Restore Point 14.04. existing files:
Restore Point 13.04. existing files:
Need to restore:
1.txt, state 14.04.
2.txt, state 14.04.
3.txt, state 14.04.
4.txt, state 13.04.
So it need most of all earlier tapes. To get around this, you have to create a new veeam instance (empty SQL DB), create the tape infrastructure to restore without the information of the DB.
The alternative - choose the files direct, not the folder for the restore.
We are all in the support unhappy with this concept. To change it please write a feature request to our forum.
I hope, that this constellation will be optimized in the next version of veeam.
If you have further questions, I'll be glad to answer it.

Unfortunately the first alternative is complex and takes some time. The second will be useless in case of disaster recovery.
So can you please pass this feature request to the development? Thank you.
