Symantec System Recovery 2013 can't use formatted drive

Symantec System Recovery 2013 Small Business Server Edition just seems unable to use a brand new formatted drive as a backup destination. Once I formatted it, I try to add it to the job but I get the below error:

-Error E1AD4191: F:\ is a read-only location and is not a valid destination.
--Error E7D1001D: Unable to open 'F:/Destination_Location_Test_File'.
      Error EBAB03F1: Following Operating System error occurred while performing requested operation: 'Access is denied.'

(UMI:V-281-429-16785)

The OS is SBS 2011, the drive is a Buffalo HD-PCU2 drive and formatted as NTFS. The drive is mapped as F as it appears that unless the drives are mapped they don't actually work...

The System Recovery 2013 version is 11.0.2.49853, ran LiveUpdate, no updates present.

 
Any thoughts?

Well wouldn't you know it, running SSR 2013 as admin when adding the drive works.
Nothing to do with sector size after all.

System restore has always had issues with 4K formatted drives ,but 2013 should work on that drive unless there is something in the in the drive usb interface that is interfering.
You have other drives that work ,right?

Yes, other drives do work but now the whole thing's screwed after I tried following an article from Veritas' website...

I'll have to repair it all now...

Actually, sorry, that's a server I was having issues with, so, it just happens that today is the day with the drive that's bad. It's formatted as NTFS and default, so, not 4096k. Should I set it to anything else, would that?

I just can't use this drive at all to back things up to it...
