I have a SBS 2003 server that backs up to 2 alternating USB HDDs.
For some reason, every time we plug in one of the USB disks, the monitoring software sends out a warning stating that the disk has 0 Mb free. This is untrue, the disk have several hunfred Mb free.

I have reformatted the disks, but still get the error

Any one know why?

    You will get this warning if you don't do the "safely remote USB device" step first

    Am unable to test this at the moment, but it sounds reasonable, so will award the point.

    Thanks  ;o)
