Thought I’d quickly post this to end the week.
Our current backup strategy utilises a virtual tape library with GFS with tapes periodically expiring after a set retention period. When tapes are archived to the vault, even though they will expire, the data is still recoverable when the tape is retrieved.
Anyway, we needed to recover a folder that our user remembers working on quite a long time ago but was no longer able to find it. A quick look on the Veeam B&R Tape Infrastructure tab to determine which tapes were required, perform retrieval, import the tape, retrieve the data and folder recovered. Could not be simpler.
Have a good weekend!
