Can I use old HP MediaSmart drives? RRS feed

  • Question

  • New: HP Proliant Micro G7 with WHS 2011

    Old: HP MediaSmart 475 with original WHS (2007?)

    I have open slots in the Proliant.  If I install the two old disks in the new Proliant, will the backups be available to WHS 2011?  I assume (but don't know) that the backups in 2011 are formatted differently.  Will WHS 2011 convert them and recognize them?

    Are there any other issues I should be aware of?

  • No, you can't use your old backups from WHS on WHS2011.
