Hi,
You cannot restore Veeam Backups even if you decrypt the tape backups.
Could you explain your use case please?
Thanks!

If those are file to tape jobs, you can restore them using another tool, if those are backup to tape jobs you need Veeam B&R to restore them. You don`t need license to restore by the way.

There are 2 types of tape encryption, software and hardware. Does your tape library has a native(hardware) encryption?
