Hi
Have one 120Gb folder with pictures. Folder change name (date is name) once per month. Tape have capacity 1.5Tb. Want to copy every month this folder in full version to same tape. After 12 month I have 12 folders on single tape. Just like adding folders to hdd. Is that possible with veeam? Dont need job, can copy manually.

tnx

Hi Daniel.

You need to create simple media pool with option 'Do not create, always continue current media set' on 'Media Set' step. Then create file to tape job (since backup is a job-driven process in VBR job creation is required) pointed to that media pool and add your folder to the job. Every month you need to modify the job: add a renamed folder and remove an old one. The job may be set up to run automatically on step 'Full Backup' or may be started manually if you wish.
