Naming of HDD RRS feed

  • Question


    Suggestion for a future feature would be the option to be able to individually name the hdd units attached to the WHS. I have two internal hdd's and 5 USB HDD's. Most of these disk drives are the same and when needing to remove one it is difficult to track down which one it is.


    Trying to distinguish between all the USB drives is difficult as they are all the same brand, model and 250Gb each and all appear with the same name on the WHS console.


    Any suggestions for a way around this

  • Heh, i'v had to reinstall once because i guessed wrong with one of my drives. I did however guess right once! This is something in my opinion that does need addressing.

  • The suggestion is, that the hardware vendors who will be supplying WHS, will provide the functions to achieve this.

    For the 'geeks' & enthusiasts, there is a way through the SDK to also do it: See MSDN
