Backup a partition? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed a hard drive and partitioned into 2 250gig partitions. I installed a program called prophecy (database). I want to back it up but it doesn't show up on the list of disks to backup?? I really need to backup that 250gig partition without having to format the drive!

  • Windows Home Server will only back up a partition that's been formatted with the NTFS file system. How did you format your partition?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Yes it is NTFS....It was 500gig and I partitioned it into 2 250gig partitions and formatted them both then install a database on one of them. But I cannot get the WHS backup software to see that drive letter and to back it up.
