SBS 2008 | WD Portable Passport drive not consistantly detected. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Wondering if anyone else is having a similar issue with WD Passport drives being used as backup media on SBS 2008 randomly loose their drive letter when removed and then reattached???

    Was working fine several weeks ago but then it seems as if there was an update that pulled the carpet beneath (2) servers (2 different locations) so it seems.  Hot swap or "safely remove hardware"... doesn't matter.  Once the drive is removed, the drive letter won't resurface until the server is rebooted - extremely baffling.

    Any help or insight is greatly aprreciated.
