The source server containing the files to be copied is obtained with Get-VBRServer and assigned to the $server variable. The target media pools for full backups and incremental backups are obtained with Get-VBRTapeMediaPool and assigned to $full and $increment variables beforehand accordingly. The source file path is D:\Users\UserInfo\Contacts.xls.

    Add-VBRTapeFilesJob -Name "Contacts Copy Job" -Server $server -Path "D:\Users\UserInfo\Contacts.xls"  -MediaPool $full -MediaPoolIncremental $increment

    Example 2

    This command creates a new files to tape copy job named "Agreements Copy Job" copying .pdf files from the "Signed" folder.
