Moving Tapes to Vault

Recorded tapes can be moved to a vault. In the vault, you can view tape information, including data written to tape and data retention settings.

If the tapes are placed to a vault, you can still view them under the Offline node or in the media pool.

You can move the tapes manually or instruct the relevant media pool to place the tapes to a vault automatically.
