I have to back up a 50 gig file to an external drive weekly. If I plug it into USB, the server hangs (nonresponsive explorer etc). Tried 2 different drives with same result.
Googling suggests this is due to the drive getting assigned a drive letter that's already taken. If that's correct, how can I work around it? Right now I'm transferring the file over the network... takes forever. I tried booting with the drive plugged (works ok) and assigning it a high drive letter, but if I unplug and replug it, it hangs again. I want to be able to do this every week without rebooting the server.
