Loading Tapes

When you need to add free tapes, or if you need to restore data from offline tapes, you need to load these tapes into your tape device.

When you load tapes into the tape device, Veeam does not recognize them automatically.

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 & Replication can use the tapes to read or write data.
