Question: Will DPM 2010 support backing up to USB drives without having to purchase 3rd party software?
Answer: No. We will take that feedback in the next release. With third party products like CristaLink FireStreamer will work in DPM 2010¿

DPM generally uses the disks directly wihtout being formatted/mounted as normal disks.

Some USB drives have been known to work but many dont.
You can try it by connecting the USB disk and going into disk management.
select the disk and remove the partition from it. as a raw disk, DPM may see it, but it is not actualy supported so may not work.

CARE: make sure you select the correct disk before removing the partition!
