ABB + Hyper Backup + USB Copy

Looking for potential feedback.. I am using ABB to backup 5 computers. It works wonderfully. I recently setup Hyper Backup to copy the ABB data to a USB Hard drive, to store it off of the NAS. The first run this weekend took almost 3 days for 3TB! But it worked. And a 2nd run was much faster. I plan to do this manually about once/month or so.

I know I can also do Hyper Backup to a local folder on the NAS instead, and schedule it something like once/wk. Could I then use USB Copy to put that onto the USB? Since it is a real copy I assume, if I needed, I could restore then direct from the USB copy into the NAS/ABB, then relink.

Would this be a good practice, or should I just use HyperBackup direct to USB and forget about the intermittent 'local' copy.
thanks
 
That option will work ofc and if time is a factor then use this method. USB copy also have several options and methods how it works so use the scenario that will fit your needs.

Direct HB backup as tested will also be an option. Not sure how much faster would this ABB > HB > USBCopy vs ABB > HB be considering you will do it once a month, but all in all, both methods work in terms that you get a working ABB content that you can relink.
