WHS console does not see usb flash drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, this seems to be a great forum for answers. No matter what kind of usb drive I plug in the main it's not seen under storage. I can remote into WHS and click on my computer and the thumb drive is there and accessible. I have tried reformatting to ntfs and still nothing. I want to add the drive as an external backup.

    Any help would be great.

    By the way I love home server.

  • In the storage area only hard disks are shown. Thumbdrives are not hard drives and so they are not supported in the console.
