Question about Quantum (BH2BA-YF) (BH2BAYF) DAT Tape Drive
You need to know the tape drive make and model (can get that from device manager) to find out the maximum size your drive can handle. Most drives are capable of using lower capacity tapes in higher capacity drives. If you are already using the highest capacity tapes your drive can handle then your options are to reduce the amount you are backing up at any one time, use more than one tape or get a new drive. Alternativly a cheaper option is to use external usb or esata removable hard drives.

Judging by the media that you are using then it looks like you will need to replace both the media and the tape drives, some of the larger VXA tape drives support using 1 media type in 2 different drives and the different drives allow you to store different amounts of data. But in your case you will just need new tapes and drives

Highest capacity tape is the DDS-4 150M tape which you are currently using. You can upgrade your drive to a DAT72 or DDS-5. You will get 72GB compressed on 1 tape. Or you can upgrade your current drive to a DAT autoloader which can hold more that 1 tape at a time for increased capacity.
