Harddrive on USB RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has WHS come up with a way to make it stop asking for a backup reconfigure every time a hard drive is attached to a USB connection?  I saw where the problem was discussed at great length back in 2007 but I did not see a solution.  Did I miss something?  It is a bit of a pain having to reconfigure everytime I fire up my USB harddrive device.

  • Unfortunately not. A USB drive identifies itself as a hard drive, and as a result Windows Home Server wants to back it up. If you don't want it backed up, you can just attach it, use it, and detach it., i.e. ignore the warning.

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

  • I don't know if the WHS team looks in on this forum but it would seem this is a good to do item!
