hi,
quick one...
I ejected tapes from 2 drives (was need them).
Now drives are empty...
Would VEEAM move expired tapes to drives automatically... before starting next scheduled job?
or how I can do it manually if needed

Thx.

Not sure whether I follow you on that. Upon expiration tapes will be re-used by tape jobs, if that's what you're asking for. Thanks.

let me try to repeat... I feel my question was clear :)

again...

I ejected tapes from 2 drives. Now drives are empty. Hope this is clear :) ?
Now I want to assure that drives will be ready for the next scheduled backup job.

1. would tapes from the slots will be moved to the drives automatically or I have to do "something" manually?
Don't see any option move to drive... so can expect that it will be done automatically at some point.
Sorry didn't touch extensively VEEAM yet...
Thanks.

Tapes will be moved from library slot(s) to drive(s) automatically.
