Problem with enabling folder duplication on Acer H340 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently setup an Acer H340 EasyStore (2TB), and love it.  I am having one problem:  I installed a 2nd 2TB HD as a backup (so I only have 2TB of available storage), but when I go into Shared Folders via the WHS Console I cannot enable Folder Duplication on any folder.  Specifically, the "Enable folder duplication" checkbox is available, but I cannot check it. 

    I have very little content on it right now, so it's not a lack-of-memory issue.  I also have full rights to update the shared folders, so I don't think that's the issue.  Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

  • Remove the drive added as backup and add it back as for server storage - then you can enable folder duplication.

    Backup drives are meant to be used to perform a backup and then be removed off site.
