Automatically exclude EXTERNAL USB Backup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Is there a way to automatically exclude external USB drives from being backed up.

    Each time I plug in a USB drive, WHS connector seems to insist on backing up the drive.

    It's very tedious to manually exclude the drive each time.

    Thanks.

  • Not really. Some drives are uniquely identified and will be excluded every time they're connected, once you've excluded them the first time. But for the most part, you'll hve to manually exclude the drive if you want to leave it connected for a significant amount of time but not have it backed up.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
