I have a 3TB USB drive and I want Carbonite to back it up (as it does with my internal hard drives). It will not back up external drives.

I want to trick Windows Vista into reporting this drive (or a mapped directory on the drive) as Fixed.

Any ideas short of Dokan ?

Have you tried using a symlink or telling windows to mount the drive as a folder in another drive?

+1 for a symlink. This is how I get VS to load binaries from a network drive. – surfasb Jul 28 '11 at 5:36
