I am using Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R2 to backup jobs ( Weekend full backups & Daily Diff Backups ). These backups directley saved on NAS storage.
I want to copy Weekend full backup set to exiernal USB drive on next working day usually on Mondays, is there any way to do this task using Symantec Backup ?
If I use windows task mgr & copy command to do this job can I restore data on this USB device & how ?
Please help me
Thank You in advance....
You should create a duplicate job to run to a B2D devise (the usb). Make a Backup-to-Disk folder on your usb device and then create a duplicate job to duplicate the full backup set to the b2d folder.

Thank you for your prompt reply.
I go through the steps in TECH24544 & according to the Figure 3 (I Select Duplicate backup sets following a job (Figure 3), and then click OK) . I received following error msg (please see the attached screen shot)
" To duplicate backup sets following a job, the backup job must be scheduled to run and must not be associated with any other duplicate backup set jobs. Currently, there are no jobs that meet this criteria."
But I created already created weekend full back job & it works fine for years ... what is the reason behind this error.
See this document for the reasons why you should not copy the contents of a B2D folder.
When you run a manual duplication job, you can only duplicate backup sets from jobs which have already ran. You cannot manually duplicate backup sets from a job that has yet to be run.
If you want to automatically duplicate the backup sets from your weekend full backup, then you need to use a policy with a backup template and a duplicate template linked to the duplicate template. See this document
