Appending on tape in Backup Exec 10

By nmgonzalez ·
I currently have 5 backups every day. One full and 4 incremental. I recycle the tapes every two weeks. When I do the full backup I would like for it to overwrite from the beginning of the tape. Then any incrementals I would like to append. Next time I use the tape, I want it to go through the same process with the tape. Start overwriting from the beginning and appending over any old data. I dont want the tape to become full with old appends until it no longer has any space. How can I setup Backup Exec to do this? Thanks in advanced.

Create 2 Jobs

Create one job to run once a week and set it up to overwrite the data in the job properties.
Create another job to run the other days of the week and set it to append in the job properties.

Make sure the media set has the correct overwrite and append protection settings.
