This service is a component of Remote Storage. The purpose is to migrate infrequently used files to backup media, typically to tape. This has the benefit that the system automatically cleans up space that you may consider wasted since it's used infrequently and if they need the files in the future then they can be retrieved.
The purpose of this particular service is to retrieve and store files to backup media, typically to tape. Disabling this service will effectively disable Remote Storage, but you should just remove it from Add / Remove Components instead if you do not want to use these features.
