Backup problems with two 1.5 TB external hard drives on each of two computers. RRS feed

  • That chkdsk corrects the problem long enough for a backup suggests a problem with the drives. That could be with USB mass storage drivers (though that seems unlikely), with the USB controller or ports on the motherboard, with cabling, the bridge electronics in the enclosure, the drives, etc. It doesn't suggest a problem with Windows Home Server, though. Windows Home Server relies on the hardware and software being in proper order for it's functionality.

    Does the PC in question back up if the drives are not connected?

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