Usage of tapes

Post by UT2015 » May 22, 2017 8:42 am

Hi there,

currently Veeam uses free tapes alphabetically, starting with 00001, 00002, ... later GWO001, GWO002, etc.

This leads to some tapes being used very often, while others stay in the library forever and are used very rarely to never.

It would be better, if Veeam would remember how often each tape was already used in the past and would prefer less used tapes to often used tapes. This would lead to longer lasting tapes...

Best regards,
UT2015

Hi.

Thanks for the request. We're thinking of introducing that feature in in one of our future major releases.
