backup fails with removed usb drive RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • After I removed a USB drive from a client computer, backup shows as failed and network healthy shows at risk because WHS backup can no longer backup the removed USB drive. If it ain't there then WHS shouldn't fret over it. In my case, I moved the USB drive from the client computer to the WHS. I would hate to have the network health indicator to be permanently on in the at risk situation.

  • While I certainly understand where you are coming from, how would WHS know whether or not the "missing" drive was actually important or not? Certainly I would want to know if one my drives was missing so that I could make the determination myself.


    If you rerun the backup config for that computer once you have removed the drive then it wont show up as missing anymore then you wont have that problem.
