  3. Right-click the job and choose the following options:
    • To select a specific job for creating a backup copy, select Pick for Backup Copy.
    • To prevent a job from being moved to media, select Do not Backup Copy.

      You can select Do not Backup Copy option to those jobs that were previously selected for moving to media.
