Tape job does not copy source backup files and finishes with "No backup files found"/"No new files found" message

Veeam Backup & Replication
Last Modified:


A tape job finishes with the Success status, but the backup files of a source job(s) are not copied. In the tape job statistics, you can find the "No backup files found"/"No new files found" message.


Case 1:
•   The source job is a backup copy job.
•   At the Choose Media Pool for Full Backups step of the tape job wizard, virtual full backups are scheduled to be created every day or several days in a row. 
•   At the Choose Media Pool for Incremental Backups step of the wizard, the Archive incremental backups to tape option is disabled. 
•   At the Advanced Settings step of the wizard, the Process latest full backup chain only option is enabled.

Case 2:
This case is similar to Case 1, but the backup copy job is scheduled to run less than in 12 hours. So, backup files are created two or more times a day. Also, the tape job starts during the second copy job interval of a current day. 

In the log files of the tape job, you may find the following:
