Full + Differential on same tape

Full + Differential on same tape

We have a DLT backup device with five 80 GB (native capacity) tapes. I'd like to set up TapeWare 7.00 so that it runs a full backup of critical data (about 5 GB) every Tuesday and differential backups every other day of the week. All backups in a given week will be appended to the same tape. Every week of the month we'll change to a different tape. Data volume is so low that we can probably append for 6 months before the tape fills up. When the tape is full, I'd like TapeWare to erase it and start over again. How do I set up this up? Custom backup jobs? Manual backup jobs? Any help will be appreciated.
