Because I don't have enough physical tape drives.
My plan for my OS upgrade is:
1. GO SAVE 21 to physical tape
2. OS upgrade, PTFs, & everything else
3. GO SAVE 21 to virtual tape
4. Next business day, dupe virtual tape to phyiscal and wipe virtual tape

Why bother doing the save? You can't use it to recover. If you are
just after the system data, you could:
appending to the tape as you go, but watch our, performance will most
likely be awful.
Saving the OS to itself make no sense whatsoever. Or use Option 23 from
the save menu as opposed to option 21.
