external drive doesnt show up in my computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed a LaCie 250GB USB external harddrive today, and it did install fine in Windows Home Server Console.


    But it aint viewable in My Computer at the server?  

    It aint that big problem, but I just wanted to set some folders shared there, that I knew was on the External Harddrive, so I could take em with me if I needed them. (and use it as backup too) Or maybe that aint possible?


    Any ideas?

  • The behavior you're seeing is by design. Once a drive has been assigned to the storage pool in the console, you should leave it connected to WHS until you remove it using the console. And you can't control how shares are placed on drives; WHS does that.
