Tape out and direct restore vs staging

Hi there,

WIth 9.5 it talks about direct restore from tape without staging, my question is then how am I supposed to configure the tape out job to allow me to browse the content of the backups on tape, select on a file level what I want to restore, insert the tapes required for the restore, and then restore directly to the original location without having to stage/import the backup file to disk first?

Hi Jaques, if you're talking about FLR (VM guest OS files restore) from tape, then you still need to restore the backup file to repository first. Direct restore from tape is available for entire VMs only.
