1. Remove the catalog from the affected tapes in the backup set(s). (Tapes must be offline for this)
2.Re-catalog the tapes once online.
3. Restore your file(s) without being asked for tapes from previous backups!

I hope this helps others :)


We attempted this, but as we do weekly as well as monthly backups, it wants us to remove about 15 tapes in order to allow us to use just a single restore point.

+1 to Veeam fixing this asap or at least nominating an ETA. In our case, we have migrated from ARCserve to Veeam, and have lost restore functionality. With ARCserve, we could simply restore all the contents of a tape. Veeam doesn't allow this, hence we have this issue.

Unless we can get an ETA then we will need to consider stopping tape backups with Veeam and instead switching back to ARCserve.

[MERGED] Horrible restore from File to Tape Job

Veeam Logoby check4backup » Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:39 am

Hi,

It's the old thing. If i restore an complete Folder, Veeam asks for all Tapes from previous Backups.

I know, it's documented in the description.

See here:

It's a known issue, indeed. Also, we plan to fix it in one of the next product versions. However, at that moment we cannot provide any ETA. Thanks.

Is there an appointment?

Many greetings.

Unfortunately we still сannot provide any ETA, but you can be sure this feature has a high priority in our books. Thanks.

I can't believe this still isn't fixed. Add us to the list of impacted users impatiently awaiting this functionality. I can't believe this got a lower priority than other stuff and has been open since 2016, the future may not include tape but WE'RE NOWHERE NEAR THAT POINT YET!!
