Sure you can. You need 3 jobs. (maybe 4 - if your weekly full backup
is on a separate tape.)
With only 1 tape per week:
1) As done with your #1, set to overwrite.
2) Incremental for each night (Mon-Thurs), set to append.
3) Full of just that dir. each night (Mon-Thurs), set to append. Make
it run an hour or so (depends on your needs) after incremental.
With 2 tapes per week:
1) as done above.
2) Incremental on Mon night, set to overwrite on different tape than
3) Incremental on Tue-Thurs, set to append.
4) full of just that dir (like above)
