  • I'm wanting to use an external drive to backup my server.  It is not showing up in the wizard list, but is mounted and working fine otherwise.  It is USB 2.0 complian.  Any thoughts on why?

  • fixed.  Someone suggested that I removed the drive letter and volume label and rebooted.  That fixed it.  I have since tried to recreate the issue by adding the label and drive letter back, but it continues to work.

  • The drive in question was most likely previously formatted as NTFS.

    If that was the scenerio, WHS would have automaticaly used the

    drive as a data drive.
