Or Some netbackup features depends on Storage and cant be used on tape drive?

  • Hi,

     

    With tape you can perform single pass backups and perform full and file level restores of guests.

    To use instant recovery you need to have disk. Check the note http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH211113.
