how to copy an sql backup file from backup exec without using restore

I'm trying to copy an SQL backup file from tape using backup exec, the problem is i do not want to restore the SQL file  i want to be able to copy the file to another location (external hdd) for testing in a different environment.

if i try to restore to the external hdd it fails.

Any ideas?
