At the Advanced tab, you can select what backups from the backup chain to copy, enable hardware compression or specify custom scripts that you want to run before and/or after the backup to tape job.

At the Options step of the wizard, click Advanced. Select the Advanced tab.

  1. [Not available for GFS tape jobs] Select the Process latest full backup chain only check box if you want to copy only the last backup chain with each tape job run.

  2. Disable the Use hardware compression when available check box.
  3. Select the Run the following script before the job and/or Run the following script after the job check boxes and click Browse to choose executable file(s).

You can select to execute pre- and post-job actions after a number of job sessions or on specific week days.

  • If you select the Run every... backup session option, specify the number of the job sessions after which the script(s) must be executed.

Advanced Settings Tip:

After you specify necessary settings for the tape job, you can save them as default settings. To do this, click Save as Default at the bottom left corner of the Advanced Settings window. When you create a new backup to tape job, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically apply the default settings to the new job.
