Output contents of tape to Excel before removing from Catalog?

Post by alex.talmage » Mar 15, 2019 12:11 pm

We are looking at removing some old tapes from the Catalog. I wondered if anyone was aware of a way of outputting the contents of a tape to Excel, as say CSV or XLSX? Our concern is that once removed from the catalog, it won't be easy for us to pinpoint which tape sets a file might be on if we ever need to restore an archived file.

Hi Dima,

Apologies I've only just seen your reply. Yes we do have Veeam One installed. Is there a report capable of doing this?

This report would be perfect, except it doesn't include File to Tape jobs that I can tell?
