My plan is to setup a Qudastor VTL with a NEO (overland) tape library FCP attached.
My question (fear) is about exporting tapes. When you do a FILE to VTL backup with VEEAM, does VEEAM keep the tape/object in the database? If I export the Vtape out of the VTL to gain space, will VEEAM remember the tape number if I need to restore? I am assuming that if I export V to Physical tape I will maintain the same serial number on the tape. So the ultimate question is: Will VEEAM tell me "I need tape #xxxx" inserted into the library? If I need a single file or directory does VEEAM keep a record of where (which tape) it is?
Thank you in advance.

file-to-tape keeps all files in the SQL database, yes. That's why you probably want to use a SQL standard edition or better instead of the built-in SQL Express.
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... ml?ver=110 - yes, there is the "required tapes" column.
The main question is the amount and size of files you try to protect with that method.
PS: I split your question away from the other topic, as it was about something else

Say, VTL emulated media is named VTL001, the real tape media behind it is LTO009. Veeam B&R will request VTL001 when you will perform recovery.
