Create a "Backup to Disk Folder" on the USB Drive.  Select that Backup to Disk Folder as your backup location, just as you would have the Tape Drive.

I believe you will need to create a folder on the drive and share it.  IIRC, Backup Exec requires the drive be a shared network resource to use as a backup to disk folder.  You may be able to just grant permissions to the Backup Exec service, though.
