i have a question ragarding Tape Data Retention.
I want to acchive that my Backups are offloaded on Tape and protected for MINIMAL two Weeks.
If there are more Tapes available to store a longer Period of time than my Protection TIme, Veeam should use that Tapes first.
Right now it seems for me that Veeam only cares about protecting two Weeks. The other (much older Tapes) are not used.
I realized this after looking at my Restore Points on Tape for a VM.
There where about 500 Restore Points available. The first 22 RP where for the last 22 Days (1 RP on each Day). I think this are my "2 Weeks ProtectioN". But then there was a huge Cap and there where much more RP starting with "166 days ago".
This Restore Points are on Tapes within my library (maybe created by another retired Backup to Tape Job). But Veeam don't overwrite this Backups.
Is this by Design?
Is this because the Tapes with the old Backups were created with another (meanwhile deleted) Backup to Tape Job?
