Hi Neil,

The key to such a mechanism is in the format that the archive container is written. As long as the container format for the two types of containers is the same, it is quite "doable". You just need a tool that can tape the file and write it as raw data to the tape so that the format and any metadata in the container is retained.

BRU Server already does this (D2D and D2D2T) and you can do it through a script with BRU PE, disk archiving and the tapewrite command line tool that is included. Drop our support team a note for more details.

BRU ... because it's the RESTORE that matters!
