Hellow Experts.

I back up some virtual server's VMDK file to LTO tape device once a week.
And I want to restore one server's vmdk file from LTO tape by using Symantec Backup Exec 2010 to usb drive.
Therefore,I set up "New job" from "Restore Tasks" like followings on Symantec Backup Exec 2010.

I checked the box followings

File Redirection
direct file sets
Restore to drive <<USB Drive>>
Resore to path <<USB Drive path >>

I run this restore job and it failed soon.

the error messages :
The job failed with the following error:Unable to attach to a resource.
Make sure that all selected resouorces exist and are online and then try again.
If the server or resource no longer exists.
remove it from the selection list.Edit the selection list properties,
click the View Selection Details tab, and then remove the resource.

I have no idea what is happening.
USB Drive is very new one and capacity is enough.
The USB Drive is visible from Back up server.

Please let me know how to restore the vmkd file on the usb drive.
