I'm not clear what you want. Do you mean you don't have any more tapes at
all? Or, you want to split the backup across multiple tapes? You want
everything except home on one tape and home in a backup all by itself,
not on tape?
Use the filters to get everything except /home:
Options -> Backup -> File Selection Options -> Edit
Add a pattern such as:
Shell-style pattern: /home/*
Be sure to save it or it will be forgotten.
Then run the backup. If you can come up with another tape it can be
spread across more than a single tape.
If that isn't what you mean, please be more specific.
