How Restoring Files from Tape Works

When Veeam Backup & Replication restores files archived to tape, it performs the following operations:

  1. Veeam Backup & Replication checks the Tape Catalog in the Veeam Backup & Replication database to discover the tapes containing the needed restore point of the files. If the tapes are offline, Veeam Backup & Replication prompts the user to insert the required tapes.
  2. Veeam Backup & Replication connects to the Data Mover service deployed on a tape server.
  3. The Data Mover copies the relevant files from the tapes to a chosen target location, same or new one.
  4. Veeam Backup & Replication updates the Tape Catalog in the Veeam Backup database.
