I am wanting to just plug in a USB Harddisk to my Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V machine so I can get access to it via one of the Virtual Hosts so I can copy stuff to it.

I am not sure how to do this, I can see the drive on The Hyper-V conroller but how do I get Virtual Host to see it?

Thanks that worked great. One question If I wanted to have a usb hardisk plugged in permanently for backup purposes, how do I set this up as it looks like you have to select
the drives you want attached every session.


Thanks
