    I think it's not possible , but with big archive , it's possible to send offsite primary pool , without making a copy ?

    Not using DRM. Manually, you can do anything you want with those tapes. However, there are disadvantages to manually taking primary tapes out of the library:
    - reclamation won't be able to run on these tapes as the archives expire
    - you only have a single copy of the data, if the tape goes bad or gets corrupted, you loose the data
    - if there is a disaster at the offsite location, you no longer have a copy leaving you with only the possibility to create a new archive
    - it's more work because you have to manually identify, checkout the tapes you want to ship out, and also manually track them.

    I have the same opinion

    I think it is complicated to manage, but I think it may be useful beacause i have many nolimit archives and a long recovery time does not matter

    Do you know how to do this properly ?
