Hello @Azizkheri

That will make some confusion in DP side. When it will try to search for TAPE01 will see the last tape read with that barcode. 

I will recommend to replace the barcode of the newer tapes, then you can rescan the old and the new so each will be different. If you have data already backed up in the new, just do an import catalog of the tape.
