Mapped drives to WHS show full but are not. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I map drives to the HP Windows Home Server drives. they show as full, but when I check the drivers for space in the console it shows plenty of space.  I am using this server for backup and have been unable to run the backup because of this issue.  Can you help?

  • The drive appearing to be full is normal, and is a result of how Drive Extender interacts with the operating system. Unfortunately, some software is unable to deal with this.

    May I ask why you're not using the Windows Home Server client backup tool? It makes much more efficient use of disk space, and is generally a better experience.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • I was using the NT Backup because I was backup out Netgear NAS to the home server and I was using an XP workstation as the go between.
