You need to know which version you're using. Click on Help -> About. You'll probably have either 8.6, 9.0 or 9.1.

With Backup Exec 8.6, you can't copy a job. What you can do, though, is to create a new backup job and use the existing selection list. Click on the Backup button to create a new backup and in the Selection List drop-down box, select the existing list of files and folders. You'll then need to check the remaining options for the backup job to make sure that they are the same as the one you're deleting (if that's what you want to do).

With Backup Exec 9.0 or 9.1, you can either use the existing Selection list (same as 8.6) or you can create a Backup Job Template - so that in future, you can simply use the template to create new backup jobs. But to copy an existing job, you're probably best to use the existing selection list and then check the options against the original job.

Hope this helps.
