Hi

I have connected an external USB hard drive to my SQL server (2000). When i attempt to backup from Enterprise manager (to the harddrive) i cant seem to find the drive in the list. The drive has been made active (active partition) and can be used from windows explorer without any problems.

I would appreciate it if someone can tell me if i have missed something.

Thanks

Hi

I have sorted the problem, the SQL service account must be allowed FULL control on the drive.

Thanks anyway
