Moving Data from Tape to Tape.

Can you move Data on multiple Tapes and consolidate the data by moving onto less Tapes?

Craig, only disk can be a source for the tape jobs currently. So if you need to combine files from multiple tapes to a less number of tapes, you would need to restore all the necessary files to disk first and then offload them to tapes again.
