About Data Copy methods

The Plug-in for Data Copy offers the following methods:

Backups: This method can be used to create a copy of selected backup. It can be used to perform non‑repeating data copy jobs.
Backup Sets: This method can be used to create copy of the most recent backup created using the selected Backup Selection Set. The Backup Sets method is recommended when you want to perform regular Data Copy jobs.
IMPORTANT:  
You cannot use the Plug-in for Data Copy to create copies of backups that were created using the Archive option.
You cannot use the Plug-in for Data Copy to create copies of Data Copy backups that were created using the Secondary Copy method or the Plug-in for Data Copy. In other words, you cannot use a Data Copy backup to create another Data Copy.
