Well, I plan on doing that anyway, but that folder won't show up directly in the console (have to start a FLR). I want backups that are easily identified without having to dig for the details. I think I can accomplish what I want with a one-off Backup Copy job for each server/date combination; tedious, but should get me where I want to go.
Side observation - in a lot of areas of IT, vendors create ways of making the migration from a competitor's product to their own fairly easy, to encourage customers to switch. That doesn't seem to be the case for backup software vendors.
