Server backups to internal drive


Recommended Posts

I have an extra internal 2TB hard drive installed in my server that I have the client computer backups using. I'd also like to use the drive for my server backups as well but I'm getting an error. If I use the backup option in the dashboard I get the message that it "can't find any drives suitable for a backup destination". If I open the Server Backup program directly and attempt to make a schedule it will go all the way through the wizard to the last step and I get the error "One of the source volumes specified has an invalid format and cannot be protected. Only volumes formatted with NTFS/ReFS can be protected." I attached screenshots of my drive selection for backup, everything is NTFS. Any suggestions?

You'll need to move your client backups to another drive. WHS backup needs a dedicated hard drive. It will format the hard drive.
