Missing hard drive in SBS console server storage list

I would like to move my WSUS repository to an external USB hard drive due to low disk space or to a network drive. However, there doesn’t appear to an option to move to a network drive and the external USB drive doesn’t show up.

Strangely, another external USB drive does show up. So I went to computer manager/hard drives to see if there was anything wrong with the other hard drive, both USB drives seemed the same from here except that one had a 12mb empty partition (which did work) and the other just had one partition which was for everything.
NB,  the drive has a letter assigned to it and works fine in windows Explorer.  Both are NTFS.

Can you advice why this is / how to get the hard drive to show up?
