Remove backup destination drive in sbs 2011

I have a client running SBS 2011 with 2 USB 1 TB drives attached the backups were working with no errors.

Two days ago the client wanted to change both out for small "footprint" drives. Using the "SBS Console" I attempted to remove both with the wizard (unchecked both drives).
Only one destination drive was removed and the other could not be removed via the wizard. I verified it by going into "Computer" and seeing only one of the two showing up.

Is there an alternate method of removing the destination drive?

Regards,

Frank

Was a backup job in progress when you went to remove the two drives (sorry, I have to ask the silly questions sometimes)?

Did you try removing all the backup jobs first, then attempt removing the drives via the wizard?

Hello,

Add the other two drives and they try removing the older one.  

Is there SBS up-to-date?

Removing the drives via the SBS Console is the correct method for doing this.

Thanks  VB ITS,

I removed the backup jobs then the USB drive showed up in "Computer". I then reconfigured the backup with the new drives.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction on this
