I have run into an extremely frustrating problem with Backup Exec 16. The ability to create and save file server selection lists was apparently removed as it had existed in BE2010.
There is also apparently no way to simply copy all the settings of an existing backup job into a new job, including the file selection lists of the original job.

The only way I have found to transfer those settings is to:
This is ridiculous.
You can use the Backup Exec Command Line Interface (CLI) or BEMCLI
