Exporting Tapes

If you want to take the tapes out of the tape device, you need to export them first. Exporting ejects the tapes from the slots in the tape device and moves them to the I/E slot (or Mail slot). When they are in the I/E slot, you can take them from the library and, for example, carry to a storing location.

Exporting Tapes Note:

Export is available only for the devices that support corresponding operations and include I/E slot.

To export a tape:

  1. Open the Tape Infrastructure view.
  2. Navigate to the list of tapes either under the Media Pools or under the Libraries > LibraryName node > Media > Online.
  3. Select a tape you want to export and click Export on the ribbon.
    Alternatively, you can right-click selected tape and choose Export Tape from the shortcut menu.

Exporting Tapes Tip:

You can instruct your tape jobs to export tapes automatically. To do so, navigate to the Options step of backup to tape job or file to tape job and select the Export current media set upon job completion check box.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
