+1 For restore file directly from tape. Please implement, it would save us hours. We´ve never had a reqason to restore a VM from tape, but individual files, that happens regularly.

We understand that file restore from VM on tape is also a very important functionality. We are looking into this feature request.


Patiently waiting for this feature as well. Since Veeam offers the ability to pull a single guest file from a regular backup / replica, this would be a nice tape backup addition. Guess for now we'll be doing file backup instead of VM backup to tape.

+1 me please

I was hoping that 9.5 U2 will help address this but it doesn't appear to based off of the feature list. :(

Very disappointing that this basic functionality does still not exist in Veeam :(

Perhaps there are just more technical hurdles to overcome when dealing with linear media vs random access?

Correct. That's not just a simple improvement that may be introduced in update but a major feature.

+1 for granular file restore.

I was writing a manual for our customer on how to restore files from tape and raised an eyebrow when I saw that this feature was missing and had to append a workaround starting with "when you want to restore a file from tape, first you need to restore a restore point into a primary repository..."
