Feature Request: Eject Tape from Tape Properties, History..

Veeam Logoby Poweruser » Sat Jul 28, 2018 12:04 am

Most tape software does, veam does not:

offer an eject button, so i can eject a tape remote using the software.
(reload wont work mechanically i think for single tape drives)

offer a history when the tape was first used, how many gb was written an read, how many read/write errors occured.
do a verification if the data has been written correctly.
show when usually a tape fails by estimation usual lifetime.

I like the second part of your request. The responsible PM follow this forum closely so your feedback will help for the future.

For the first part, please check:

Or is it something else that you search for?
Maybe this one for placing a media to the IO ports of the libraries?

We are working on something similar, so thanks for sharing your ideas. Cheers!

Thats what i like here by veeam.. you can provide your ideas quickly to the right department.
other big vendors are not accessible for ideas. they just "improve" their ugly gui every update, and thats it ;-)
