Importing Tapes

When you need to load free tapes, or if you need to restore data from tapes, you need to load these tapes into your tape device and import them. Importing is recognizing tapes that are loaded into your tape device.

When you load tapes into the mail slot, they are not visible in the Veeam backup console. To start using tapes, you need to introduce them to the Veeam Backup Free Edition by running the importing procedure. The importing procedure conveys the tapes from the mail slot to the library working slots, scans them and sends information about them to Veeam backup database. After importing, Veeam Backup Free Edition can use the tapes to read or write data.

Importing runs differently for tapes that are registered in the local Veeam backup database and those that are not. Choose an appropriate procedure for the following tapes:
