Nuisance when attaching portable (USB) hard drives to clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use usb hard drives to move large video files (bluray disk images) from a wireless machine to another machine with a wired connection to the whs server in order to speed up transfer ...

    Everytime I connect the usb drive whs goes yellow and warns that it has detected a new hard drive and all backups fail after that when I remove the hard drive ...

    I tried telling whs not to backup from the attached drive ... but it automatically adds it back in again when I remove and reattach the drive ...

    I think this is a bug ...

  • No, it's by design. If you search Connect, you'll find multiple bug reports and feature suggestions to change this behavior.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
