We are evaluating the VTL software with Veeam and have successfully created a job to copy a backup job to a virtual tape and migrate it to an S3 bucket upon exporting the tape from the VTL.

Question: How do you delete a tape from the offline shelf? I can manually remove the tape from S3 but the cloud status in the Starwind console does not change.

This option should be added in the nearest time with the new release.

Hi There,

Is there any progess on this feature? Is it implemented also in the free edition?
We also testing StarWind VTL free as an offsite backup solution whereas now we have tons of VTLs on the Offline Shelf after our tests. Is there way in the free edition via PowerShell to clean them up?

Thank you in advance!
