Have one server to backup.  Using BE 10d and Server 2003.  Until the organization can decide which media to use, I need to configure BE to backup to a portable USB 2.0 hard drive.  They may purchase a tape drive or maybe use eSATA later down the road.  Anyway, I need a little help configuring BE to backup to the USB drive. BE 10d is a new install.   Ideally, I would like to place two days worth of backups on the one drive, it is plenty large enough capacity.  If it is not practical to do that, then weekly to drives swapped weekly would work.    I have looked on Symantec's web site for help, but it is pretty confusing to find just what you are looking for.  Thanks for your help.
