How does BE transfer data to remote Backup to disk folder?

Not a huge problem i guess but here's the situation:

  • Using backup exec 2010
  • remote site has a ton of data on one server and a ton of free space on the server sitting next to it.
  • idea is to use existing BE server at main site to backup remote data to backup to disk folder at same remote site

So the question is what path will that backup data take?  Ideally i would like the target server to send the backup info to a backup to disk folder on the server sitting next to it, making it essentially a local transfer.  Its too much data for us to pull over the WAN and while important could be lost in event of a physical disaster on site.  My concern though is the data will be copied over the WAN to the main site to the BE server, and then sent back over the WAN to the backup to disk folder.  Thanks :)

The data will travel

You may need to purchase an additional License and install a media server at the remote location
