We have data that is sitting in a Veeam repository that needs to be copied to tape (essentially file server data from remote sites). When comparing a "File to tape backup" to a "backup to tape" job, the file to tape is running an average of 17 MB/s vs. 50 - 70 MB/s from the same repository. I understand this isn't a great comparison as the file to tape is lots of little files vs. the backup to tape which is large VMDK's. I see others have had this same issue years ago via this post: "https://forums.veeam.com/tape-f29/files-to-tape-is-painfully-slow-t17802-75.html". We have TB's worth of data that I need to get to tape and at the current rate it will never happen even if I let it run ALL month.
So my questions are:
1. Is anyone else having this same slowness issue?
2. Is there a better way within Veeam to backup lots of small, file server type data to tape?
