  I have been using 5 external USB hard drives (250GB Seagate FreeAgent External Hard Drive) for Monday thru Friday.
  Before then we used to use 5 physical tapes using HP LTO tape drive, but decided to migrate to external USB hard drives when the tape drive broke down.

   Thesedays we can buy 3TB External USB Hard Drives in the market.

   My question is that using Backup Exec Software, can I store 5 separate backup data in one 3 TB External USB Hard Drive?  In that way, I don't have to replace USB HD every day. I can keep backup data from Monday thru Friday in one 3TB drive.
