Viewing Files on Tape

After the file to tape job completes, you can view the created archive on tape:

  1. Open the Files view and press F5 to refresh it.
  2. Expand the Tape node and locate the files archive.

For Microsoft Windows and Linux file backups, Veeam Backup & Replication preserves the source hierarchy of folders for archived files.

For NMDP backups, you can view only volumes.

You can use the created archives for file recovery. For more information, see File Restore from Tape.


The Files on Tape view displays only first 1000 items. For archive folders with more than 1000 items, you can use the search field to display the items you are looking for.
