817Re: NSLU2 not recognising drive.
- Feb 13, 2005Does it not appear as a share, or not appear as a drive under web
interface administration.advanced.disk settings?
If it cannot be mapped as a share, your problem is probably
that "scheduled backup" is checked on admin.advanced.backup settings
and when this is done drive 2 is not mappable as share. Logically,
this is done so you do not copy things to disk2, only to have disk1
contents overwrite disk2 via backup process.
