WHS 2011 Drive not appearing in explorer of connected PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, Please help.

    I have just upgraded from scratch, from WHS to WHS 2011. 16TB Server split this way:

    2x 1TB Raid 1 (Data)
    2x 1TB Raid 1 (Music & Photo)
    4x 1TB Raid 10 (Security Video)
    8x 1TB Simple Volume Drives (Movies 1-8)

    All my drives are visible in Disk Manager and in the WHS2011 Dashboard but none of the drives are showing up in Shared Folders or in Explorer of a connected PC....is there something I have to do to get those drives shared so any connected PC can see them.??

    Been stuck for a while please help.

    D.

    you have to have a folder in the drive and share the folder   you cant just share the drive. just in case anyone was interested to know.
