All data necessary for a restore is kept in Disk Safes. On a physical level, a Disk Safe is a folder containing files and folders. You can change a Disk Safe's path by manually copying its folder to the other location. In this case, close the Disk Safe via the Server Backup Manager interface, and then move/copy the folder to the desired place. Finally, open the Disk Safe via the SBM interface.
You can open a Disk Safe created in another Backup Manager.
