Adding storage through WHS console, two identical drives? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two identical hard drives. One of the hard drives has data on it and the other hard drive has been reformatted with no data on it. I want to add the hard drive that has been reformatted through the WHS console as storage. The only problem being that both of the hard drives are the listed as 1.83 TB. I’m not able to differentiate between the two drives. How can I be sure to add the correct drive?

  • The only sure way I can think if is to power off the server and disconnect one drive. Then turn the server on and use remote desktop to log into it to look at the drive.
