v9, Files, Tape, you cannot sort by any column. Really need this please - and add what tape(s) a given file is on as a column too please.

Hello rreed,
Thanks for the request! For now you can use Veeam ONE Tape Backups report.

You are welcome.
You may try using powershell scripts for now.

Another way to check where restore points are written is to right-click on the desired file or backup > go to its properties > "Restore points" tab.
There is a "Tapes" column showing the desired info.
Thanks!

Depends on what exactly you want. There are some good scripts on Powershell subforum.
Please take a look.

I'm struggling to find this information, where exactly are we right-clicking on the backup for this information? I've tried Backups | Tape | Job Name | Properties but don't see tape info?

Ahhhh, many thanks - I never do any "Files" based backups so have never even clicked on that option as I assumed I'd never find anything in there! :)

Never say never :)
As I said we will think how to show the info more explicitly.

Yeah I've been limping by w/ the Files, Tape, (search for my backup file name), then go through and right-click/properties each one but it can be a little time-consuming and tedious after a while. Looking forward to those columns getting fixed up a bit. :wink:
