Identifying backup tapes using their specific number

By Eric5775 ·
Hi, have written a batch file to backup info on a 2003 server. I wish to use differential backups and need to find the individual number of the tapes to put them in the batch file. I want to run the same tape 3 times eg wed thur and mon. Where can i find the tape individual identification.

The Numbers are on the Header when the Tape was formatted the last time

You need to look at the Tapes through the Computer.

But I must say that this is a terribly inefficient way to proceed here as that Identifying Tag is changed every time that a Tape is Formatted.
