About copying deduplicated data to tapes

Backup Exec lets you copy deduplicated data from an OpenStorage device to tape for long-term or off-site storage. When data is copied to tape, it is rehydrated. In other words, the files are reassembled into their original form and are not deduplicated.

To copy deduplicated data to tapes, you must create a duplicate backup job that copies the backup sets from the OpenStorage device to a tape device.

See Duplicating backed up data.
