File to Tape
Case # 01679340 (January 2016)
Current Case # 02065747
we write with a "File to Tape Backup"-Job directories and files to our tape every night.
We use always "Fullbackup" and every night we generate new "Media Sets".
For disaster recovery we like to do "File Restore from Tape".
We select the last "Media Set" (Backup Set) to restore the last state/condition of data from tape to disk.
Now Veeam shows all the tapes (34 tapes) we ever used for backup this directory: "The following tapes will be needed in the restore process".
This is not manageable!
The "Required space" Veeam shows is much greater (1,5 TB) than the space we need for the full backup (280 GB).
With Case # 01679340 (January 2016) we got from Veeam Support a workaround for Veeam B&R Version 8/9.
It was a small changing in a stored procedure in the SQL-Server.
With Update Version 9.5 this workaround do not longer works, because the related stored procedure do not exists in Version 9.5.
Actual: Case # 02065747
Please, make a new feature/switch in future version to restore only files and directories from one "Media Set/Backup Set" like workaround from Case 02065747
