Media Required for Recovery Report not working with duplications

Hello forum,

it seems to me that the "Media Required for Recovery"-Report is not working as intended when backup sets are being duplicated.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Backup test Data to Storage A (lets say B2D)
  • Run Report. Result: It corretcly shows the B2D entry as required for recovery
  • Duplicate the Backup Set to Storage B (lets say Dedup)
  • Run Report. Result: Still corretly showing the B2D entry as required for recovery
  • Delete the Backup Set on Storage A
  • Run Report. Result: Incorrectly showing an empty report restult instead of the still available backup set on Storage B

Can anyone verify this?
