Move file from Tape to Tape

Hello
I successfully ran a B2T Job.

It used multiple Tapes.

I noticed a Tape (1) that still has 689GB free space and a Tape (2) that has 1,3TB free space.

I wonder if it is possible to move the 100GB from Tape 2 to Tape 1.

Please see the JPG.

On the JPG you can see that the same file is on each Tape.
I do not understand that.

Thanks a lot.

Hello.
It may happen either because of the parallel processing(most likely) or media set configuration allowing to keep backups on several tapes. In any case the data is restorable and not duplicated
You can`t move 100GB of one file to another tape, but you can move the whole file.
Thanks!
