Restore files from tapes

Userlevel 2

Hey all.  Using Veeam Backup and Replication 11 we backed up some files using a files to tape job as a once off outside of our normal backup routine.

When I look at the properties of the tape I can see the individual files listed.

However when attempting to restore an individual file I get the following:

Can I not select individual files to restore?  Do I have to restore the entire tape or am I doing something wrong?

Bah!  I’m being an idiot.  I right clicked the tape and clicked Restore Contents and that’s what defaulted.  Thanks regnor.

It seems like you've chosen to restore the complete tape. In that dialog, try to remove the tape and add individual files/folder via the add button. Or go to the files tab, browse the tape node and select the files to restore there.
