If you mean that resulting archive is not being deleted after writing to tape,
and you're not using solid compression to make it worth using rar - yes, you
can use "update" command.
Alternatively, if you're using solid compression, but still want to have it go
faster, you can create incremental diffs of an archive for, say, 6 days and
make full new archive every week.
