Hello Hussain,
Please open a support case and post here the case ID, need to check you logs. I believe, File to tape job should run faster. In addition, what was the approximate throughput before the upgrade? Thanks

has there ever been any outcome what the reason was? We are too backing up (archiving) directories with lots and lots of files (millions) and I am not sure if the backup is done right this way?
As it's not a warning but error I wonder if we have to worry or should open a case?

22.09.2015 22:31:43 :: Task U:\GPIX\2010.07.07 (Gigapixel Horn von Sthof aus)\gigapan.data\tiles\r01\031\311\r0103131110.jpg failed: Transaction (Process ID 75) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.

That file to tape is slow on our end is because those are many small files, so that is something that's normal.

EDIT: i just noticed, that Veeam takes up 5 GB RAM, and total Usage is 9,5 GB RAM out of 10GB. So this problaby could be a RAM issue I believe, I will give Veeam more RAM and check again what happens. the Ram was used bei Veeam.Backup.Manager, is it because it's Million of Files?
