  • Hi,

    The tape backup run date / time is NOT the same as the recovery point date / time.   The recovery point date /time is that of the LAST disk based recovery point.  All long term tape backups are done by copying the latest disk based recovery point to tape.  So in your case, the last recovery point on disk was on the 18TH, so the data on tape is the same as that regardless of when the tape backup job itself kicked off and ran.   Look at all your tape backup recovery points, they will always match the last disk based recovery point time prior to the tape backup job start time.
