Duplicate full backup and delete original?

The reason is that we are just implimenting GRT backups of Sharepoint, which requires disk storage. Until we get some new hardware, I have a very small amount of disk storage (enough for one of said backups). So, ideally, I'd like to run the normal backup on a daily schedule and then have it automatically duplicate to tape and delete the copy on disk, so that the backup can run the next day.

So, is there a way that I can automate a process to duplicate image that's on disk and delete the original once the duplication is complete? I was looking at the bpduplicate command (which we already use in batch files called by scheduled tasks to duplicate other images) and the duplication part is easy, but I can't figure out how to get rid of the old image, short of doing it manually each day.
