For this scheduled job, make sure you set it to ERASE the tape first, not append.  This is a bug in bKup exec, it does not append correctly to a lot of tapes on some drives.  You MUST set it to overwrite the tape with each backup job.  It is wasteful, yes, but this is the problem with defective backup software.
