New USB hard drive not showing up in storage pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have just installed a forth USB drive on my WHS box (it's a 1000GB drive). It shows up fine under computer management/disk manager. However it does not show up in the WHS storage pool... and therefore I'm not able to add it to the pool.

    I have done a bit of searching on this issue and it seem quite common, however no one have a solution. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this problem?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,
    if is not recommended from practical experiences, to add USB drives to the storage pool of WHS, since this was the cause for some of the trouble scenarios in the past.
    If you still want to do, please try to reinitialize your disk as described in this FAQ.
