Take VEEAM backups offsite

Setup as follows :
1 X HP DL380 Gen8 running ESXi5.5 essentials kit
1 X DC1 (windows server 2012 VM)
1 X RDS1 (Windows Server 2012 VM)
1 X physical PC with 4TB internal storage running VEEAM Backup & Replication

VM Backup job includes both VM's and runs at 22:00.  Works fine

I want to copy those backup files out to external storage for removal offsite so I added the USB drive as a backup repository, created a Backup Copy Job and scheduled it.  Will there be any issues with the backup chain if the USB drives are swapped daily? Is there a better way to configure this?

We actually maintain two copies

1. Repo on the Server (in the default location).

2. We then copy the contents of the repo to USB external drives. (or copy to cloud).

because we have had issued with USB rotation on a daily basis.

That's what I have.  Default repository is on the backup server.  Do you do a "Backup copy Job"  or a "file copy job" to get those out to USB/Cloud?
