Tape incremental backup to different tape

Hi All,
I have 5 tapes and every tape will be used on a day to day backup of data. My questions are:

1. How can i make "tar command" as the backup utility so that it will save only the data for that day.

2. How can i verify if it's successfully backed up?.

3. How can i restore these files?.
