Backup Exec 2012 limits you to one disk storage device per volume by design

thank you for your answer.

It is possible, if I have the 2012 version to install the 2010 R3?

No. It is not possible to have both the versions installed at the same time on the same server.



Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!

Can you explain why you are looking at creating more disk storages on a single USB disk? 

There is no added advantage in doing that (atleast to my knowledge). Even in earlier versions retention was managed using media sets and now it is a setting while creating job itself. You can target jobs with different retention settings to a single disk storage and will be managed by BE without any problems.

under the previous versions we have made it so, that for example every day has a own backup to disk folder.

OK - we will try to backup on one disk and see how it works

thank you
