To efficiently enable the rotation of USB drives for backups, storage pools need to be created. This way no matter which USB drive is installed, the backups will successfully write without any administrative intervention.

Video Steps

1. Multiple USB devices need to be connected to the server, assigned individual drive letters, named, and formatted (although BE will format the device if it is not already done)

2. In the home screen, select configure storage

3. Select Next, choose Disk-based storage and click Next

4. Choose Disk Storage, then click Next. Provide a name for the USB drive. The description is optional.

5. From the local disk drop down, select one of the configured USB drives and click Next

6. Review the configuration and if everything is correct, click Finish

7. Repeat steps 2-6 for each additional USB drive connected to the system

8. Once all USB devices have been configured, select Storage from the options at the top of the main screen. Then select Configure Storage and click Next

9. Select Storage Pools and click Next

10. Select Storage Device Pool and click Next

11. Provide a name for the storage pool, a description if desired, and click Next

12. Ensure Disk Storage is selected as the type of storage pool that is being created and click Next

13. In the storage device selection screen, place a check in the box for each of the USB attached drives and click Next

14. Verify that the pool is configured as desired and click Finish

15. The pool is now ready to be assigned to any backup job
