Backup to USB Hard Disks Possible?

Recommended Posts

lost9999    0

Im trying to get rid of the 8mm tapes that we use to backup our Exchange server.

Problem is if I use USB hard disks I have to re import the drive in Device Manager every time. I tried to setup a drive letter and hoped that the server would "remember" the disk and assign it the same drive letter. This is not he case. I have to go into device manager each time to re import the disk.

Am I missing something here?

Generally speaking, the drive letter should always remain the same after the drive has been completely installed unless other drive letters have changed.

I have a usb hard drive and it's always assigned the same drive letter. Also it never is not recognized and works perfect with all my backups. What type of drive is it?
