  • I have installed the windows home sever. I want to connected a USB 2.0 drive with existing data to the server. Is there a way to add the drive and access the drive without formatting and adding the drive to existing storage ( hard drives)

  • No. In order for Windows Home Server to use a drive in the storage pool, it requires complete control of the drive and contents. You can connect the drive to some other computer, copy the contents to the server shares, and then connect it to your server/add it to the storage pool. 
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
