I purchased a 2.5 inch laptop drive with an external case that allows for esata or usb connections. Since the external drive is used to host virtual machines i initially set the drive over the esata connection and formatting the drive using NTFS.
So far everything is working fine.
Now if i connect the drive using USB i receive a message (Win 7) saying that the drive is unrecognized and needs to be formatted.
The drive has already been formatted as NTFS so not sure why this is happening?
Also If i format the drive over USB then switch over to esata the same message appears.
Why is it not possible to alternate the connections?
