Property Value

A Boolean value that specifies whether the tape header is read. If True, a media name recorded on the medium is not selected. The backup set is appended to the medium. If False (default), a recorded media name is selected.

SMO implements backup media initialization using the Initializeproperty. When Initialize is True, SkipTapeHeader enables or disables logic that prevents overwrite of unexpired backup sets on a medium.
