In Windows Server Backup 2008 Standard, apparently it will not recognize USB drives larger than 1TB.  

Is there a way to simply copy the Windows Server Backup program from a Server 2008 R2 installation to make this work?

Unfortunately there is no way for this. Windows 2008 is a Vista generation OS and Windows 2008R2 is Windows 7 OS.
In your case it would be reasonable to use third party backup tools which have no problems with drive size.
Paragon Hard Disk Manager 15 http://www.paragon-software.com/small-business/hdm-business/ is a cost effective solution. Will do backup to drives over 2TB+ and perform restore both drive and file level.

Besides that, the backup tool of 2008 r2 server has the same limitations as that of 2008 server, so it wouldn't be of any help anyway. Only from 2012 Server onward can 4k sector disks be used to backup to.

You are welcome Dave.

HDM15 does not have the 4K limitation as well. So you can use bigger drives without limitations.
