Can I daisy chain backup copy jobs?

I would like to daisy chain backup copy jobs. Say we have 3 sites, A, B, and C. Backup Jobs store backups at Site A, then I'd like to have Backup Copy jobs send those backups to Site B. Then I'd like to perform Backup Copy jobs from Site B to Site C. Is this possible? Running v8. Thanks.

Hello Mile and welcome to the community!
You cannot explicitly chain backup copy jobs(restriction is made to avoid loops), but you can use backups produced by another Backup Copy job as a source.
You can point the "child" Backup Copy to a backup repository used by the "parent" Backup Copy job to store backups in, to achieve the desired result.
