Create a restore job, select the items to be restored and you would be presented with a list of backup sets which contain the items.  Select the backup set which is on tape and submit the job.

Hi pkh,
Can these items such as files or emails be listed in the restore job when I delete the backup set in disk storage? Because at the previous question, I asked about duplicate backup set from disk storage to tape and delete the backup set in disk storage for freeing hard disk capacity.
Thank you so much.

Yes.  The tape backup sets are independent of the disk backup sets.

Hi pkh,
I have one more question. Could you please explain me.
How can the restore job list the files or emails in the backup set, when I delete it in the disk storage.
Thank you.
I greatly appreciate your kindness.

After you delete the disk backup set, you would not be able to restore anything from this backup because it is gone.

Hi pkh,
I mean after I duplicate the backup set from disk storage to tape, does it save the information about the backup set to anywhere for supporting restore information (the list of files or emails) after I delete the backup set in disk storage?
And when I need to restore the information (files or emails ) Backup Exec know that the information I want to restore are stored in the tape instead of disk storage
Thank you.

When you duplicate a backup set to another media, a new c catalog entry is made which will contain all the information about the resources (files, e-mails, etc) stored in the backup set. Information regarding the media which contains the backup set w will also be created
