D Partition not listed to be backed up?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got a laptop with 2 partitions, C and D.  C is 105gig NTFS and D is 8gig Fat32.  This is the way it came from the manufacturer.  I think D is just used for recovery purposes.  I can see both drives in Windows Explorer.  When I set the backup options the D drive is not listed to be backed up.  In my other backup program, Acronis True Image it is listed.  My question is, is the D getting backed up with WHS?

     

    Thanks

  • At this point support for FAT32 is not included for WHS.  That would be why your D: partition is not included in the backup.

  • As far as we've been told, no. FAT32 drives/partitions will not be supported.  With WHS, you should never need the recovery partition on an OEM machine.  And if you do........... well........ get the disks from the OEM.

  • Thanks, any word on if it will support FAT32 when it is released?  I think alot of OEM's provide this partition for restore purposes.
