Duncan MeyersCommented:
I'm afraid not, no. You'd have to read the data back then write out to a new, encrypted, tape.
You might be able to append encrypted jobs using software encryption; I don't know and have never tried it (but it would be easy to try).

Hardware encryption is on or off for any given tape.
