Drive not appearing in Dashboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I connected a 1tb HDD to my server running Windows Home Server 2011. The drive installs but no drive letter is assigned. I use the fdisk, disk management program to assign a drive letter and the drive appears in My Computer and behaves as normal; it is formatted and can read and write data as usual.

    However this drive does not appear in Dashboard - Hard Drives Tab and I am unable to therefore create any server Folders for it.

    If add a different HDD, it shows up in the dashboard immediately.

    This 1tb drive was taken from a NAS but has since been formatted.

    can anyone help?

  • If it doesn't have a drive letter it's probably been added to server backup.Suggest you use Disk Management to remove all partitions and start again.
