Moving Media on Backup Exec 2010 from one D2D to a new D2D Safely

Hello experts!

I have a physical server running Symantec backup Exec 2010 and am using local D2D storage (dedicated second internal Array).  I have added a NAS server to the network and provisioned it in SBE as a second D2D device.  I will be visualizing this entire server and do not want to virtualize the old D2D storage location so i would like to archive/move that data to the new D2D folder.  

I cannot find a best practice for simply moving SBE media from one location to another safely.  I have already redirected the backup jobs to utilize the new D2D storage and jobs are successful.  Now I am worried about my historical backups.  What is the best practice method for moving D2D media from one physical device to another while maintaining SBE catalog database integrity?

The safest method is to use your backup application (Backup Exec) to copy the old backup jobs to the new location.  If you are using deduplication, it shouldn't take long.

Alternately, you should be able to physically move a dedicated array and catalog (import) it on the new backup server.

Do you have instruction on how to do this in BE?  I do not see any feature that allows me to copy media from one location to another.
