WHS Health reported "at Risk" - says one of my PC's has a new Hard Drive - but it doesn't? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had shut off the auto backup to one of my PC's for a about 10 days and when I turned it back on it reported a Network Health issue that it had not been backed up in 10 days - and would I like to backup NOW?  - Cool - so I said yes and let it work.

    It's been backing up every night automatically but today I see the NW Health icon is YELLOW and the message says:  "T61 has a new hard drive.  From the WHS console, select T61 and click Configure Backup to choose which hard drive volumes to back up"

    But I don't have a new hard drive, it's been backing up every night (and the Backup status says "Backed up" and if I click the check box to IGNORE this issue, the warning message remains, but gets shaded grey (instead of yellow) and tghe NW Helth icon goes back to green/Healthy...but that message remains in the window that pops up when you click NW Health.

    Is this a bug?  Why does WHS think I have a new Hard drive and how do I make the message go away?

    Thanks

    Do you have a USB device attached that contains some type of storage?

  • As a Matter of Fact - I do.  Guess I should have gone into the Configure Backup Option - I didn't realize WHS meant an "additional" drive...sounded like it thought my Laptop HD was "new".  Thanks for the quick answer!
