Windows Server 2008 - backing up to an internal SATA drive
Posted on 2013-01-17
I've got a server that contains 3 hard drives - one for the Server OS (2008 R2), one for Data and one NTFS-formatted drive with nothing on it that I'd like to use for backups. The problem is, when I launch the Windows backup utility and point it to the spare drive as the location I want to back up files, it complains "Partial backup of volumes cannot be performed to a DVD or other removable media." In looking at the Windows Disk Management utility, I see that indeed, Windows think this drive is "removable".
Is there a way I can set up this spare drive as internal backup destination?
