    I see some syntaxial issues so here is a chunk of code I used to take backups from an RSV and move them to a less expensive storage account. I used this for a client who had created several backup plans on a 5 TB premium storage account and realized that was a bad idea after his bill tripled.

    $RG = 'StorageSnapTest'
    $RSV = 'Backups-rsv'
    $RSV_RG = 'Management-rg'

    $stgSrc = 'stgautomationsource'
    $stgDst = 'stgautomationdest'
    $target = 'filesrecovered'

    $vault = Get-AzRecoveryServicesVault -ResourceGroupName $RSV_RG -Name $RSV
    $container = Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupContainer -ContainerType AzureStorage -Status Registered -VaultId $vault.ID -FriendlyName $stgSrc
    $backupItem = Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupItem -Container $container -WorkloadType AzureFiles -VaultId $vault.ID

    $rp = (Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint -Item $backupItem -VaultId $vault.ID)

    $context_acct = (Get-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $RG -Name $stgDst).Context

    foreach($snap in $rp) {
    [string] $uri = $snap.FileShareSnapshotUri
    [string] $restoreFolder = ($uri.Substring($uri.IndexOf("sharesnapshot=")).Replace(':', '_'))

    try { 
        (Get-AzStorageShare -Context $context_acct -Name $target) | New-AzStorageDirectory -Path $restoreFolder | Out-Null
    } catch {}
    $restoreJob = Restore-AzRecoveryServicesBackupItem -VaultLocation $vault.Location -RecoveryPoint $snap -TargetStorageAccountName $stgDst -TargetFileShareName $target -TargetFolder $restoreFolder -ResolveConflict Overwrite -VaultId $vault.ID
