You can share backup-to-disk folders between computers if the Central Admin

Server Option (CASO) or the SAN Shared Storage Option is installed.

Note: You cannot share a removable storage device.

In the Devices view, shared backup-to-disk folders are listed under each computer

that has access to that backup-to-disk folder. All of the logical groupings of the

backup-to-disk folders are displayed in the Devices view, under Device Pools.

If you have the Central Admin Server Option (CASO) or the SAN Shared Storage

Option installed, you can share backup-to-disk folders between computers.

Please have a look at the page 506 admin guide for backup exec 2010 which has this information
