How Restoring Backup from Tape to Repository Works

For restoring VM backups to a repository or a folder on disk, Veeam Backup & Replication performs the following steps:

  1. Veeam checks the Backup Catalog in the Veeam Backup & Replication database to discover the tapes containing the needed backup. If the tapes are offline, Veeam Backup & Replication prompts the user to insert the required tapes.
  2. The backup restore job reads the tapes consequently and copies the backup to the selected repository or folder.
  3. When the backup is copied, Veeam registers it as an imported backup.
