Backup Exec 15 to AWS Tapes

Hey all, 

I've setup backup exec to backup our 2 weekly jobs to AWS tapes.  It's been working fine the last few weeks.  Each backup going to individual tapes.  This past weekend, both jobs went to the same tape.  I would like to set it so that it uses individual tapes so if i need to recover in the future, I dont have to pull down the entire weeks data and save on download costs.  Can you please explain how i can set it up?  

Thanks

Specify overwrite in your job

What do you mean set overwrite?  Wont that overwrite my previous data?

Not if you had set your overwrite protection period correctly.
