  • What you want to do is setup backup protection to tape or just copy an existing recovery point from disk to tape?

    For backup to tape protection, just modify/create a protection group. On the wizard you need to check option 'I want long-term protection using tape'.

    If you want to backup an existing recovery point from disk to tape, you go to Recovery tab, select the datasource/date you want to copy to tape. and select recover. One of the recovery option is to copy the content to tape...

  • Hi,

    Yes, this is the only way via DPM. But if you need to do this frequently I'd recommend you to create a Long-Term protection to tape.
