Backup Exec 2010 R3 Back up to disk

I would like to create a removable backup to disk scheme with Backup Exec.

I want to use USB harddrives.  I would have a harddrive for each week.  I'll store the harddrives off site while they are not being used.

Can someone help me get started on how I would safely configure the devices in Backup Exec to do this??

Thank you,

If I am reading your question right, you are using the same hard drive for each week. This is not good as if your building burned down you would potentially lose a week of data. I would suggest rotating the backups on a daily basis taking a full backup each time but this will be down to how much data you have?

I am presuming you change the disks daily and don't leave the same disk in for a week @mahatma82?
yes the disk changes daily, but will be re-used the week after.

The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.
