This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The Tapes property specifies one or more tape devices used as a database backup target or restore source.
HRESULT GetTapes(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal); HRESULT SetTapes(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);
SQL-DMO strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The applications must release the reference using SysFreeString.
The backup medium for a backup or restore operation is specified using the Devices, Files, Pipes, or Tapes properties. Only one medium type can be specified for any backup or restore operation, but multiple media can be specified.
Set the Tapes property to specify one or more tape devices as the backup medium. Specify more than a single tape device to stripe the backup operation or to restore from a striped backup set.
