Actually, I meant it has already been backed up and on a physical tape.
I, ideally, want to delete the file from the tape so no one else can restore it without deleting the whole backup from last night.

Subject: Delete File From Backup

Today we realized we backed up (using SAVCHGOBJ) a file that had a couple of clear credit card numbers on it.
I just want to delete this file from the backup. Is there a way to do this?
