Rotating backup media with BESR 2010

I have a client with a server running SBS 2008, I have set up BESR 2010 to back up the C drive and data drives to an external hard drive, this works fine. For added security I would like to use 4 external hard drives, changing them each week and keeping the ones not in use off site. When I change the hard drives however, BESR recognises the new drive as a different destination, even if they are set up identically and refuses to back up saying "Backup destination not available".
Is there a way around this so that the drives can be switched without reconfiguring BESR each time?

Thanks both for the advice, the shared drive seems to be the way to go, only inconvenience is having another PC running all the time. Reading the help etc I think it may be possible to use a USB drive as an offsite copy but I haven't tried it yet.
