That depends on many factors. If you have under 400GB of data and using a 400GB compressed DLT do a full back up every night. 4 weeks Mon-Sun (one month) if you have the tapes include a month end tape Jan-Dec (one year). At this point you have a possible restore 1 year old. It is merely a preference and/or dependent on the amount of data...etc...etc.
