Restoring B2D2T from Tape to Live Symantec Backup Exec 10d

Hi guys and gals.

I am using Symantec Backup Exec 10d and a 5tb SATAboy with Ultrium3 8 Tape Autoloader.
Generally, the incremental backups are about 170g daily and 1.5 Tb on the weekends.

My question is.
After I backup to Disk, I run a backup job that backups the .bkf folder in the Backup to Disk Folder.
This backups last night's daily on to tape.

I only have enough for about 2 weeks on the SATAboy so if a user requests a file longer than that, I'd need to order the tape and restore it.  Therein lies the problem.

The tape has one large .bkf file that is already compressed and I can't access brick level to get certain files out of.  Therefore, I'd have to restore the whole file and go from there.

What if anything, am I doing wrong?  Is there an easier way to resolve this in more of a timely manner?

I appreciate your input in advance.
Thanks.

I think Bckup Exec has a tape copy feature that will copy the backup to disk to tape so that the data on tape will be just as if the backup was originally done to tape.
