I have XenServer 5.6 (free version) installed and have win 2k8 r2 installed as a VM.
The external drive has about 300Gb worth of data and the drive is formatted NTFS.
I can attach the drive as external storage in XenServer no problem and the drives shows up in Windows Server 2k8 R2 as drive E:.
The problem is, when I click on the drive to access the data, windows asks if I want to format the drive.
Is there a way to attach the drive and be able to retain the data on the drive? I want the drive available locally and not through a shared resource.
