    Hi. I have two hard drives in my server... The second is NOT mounted, and it shows up in the Format/Mount a new Hard Drive menu. If I want it to be a backup drive using the backup utility, so it mounts it, backs up, then unmounts it, should i use this Format/Mount a new Hard Drive utility? or what should i do in order to do that? thanks.

    What do you mean no files? Did you configure back up and save it? Post your setup?

    Try
    Code:
    mount /backup
    then
    Code:
    ls -l /backup
    They should show up in there then. At first I wasn't seeing them either but then I realized that it was unmounting the drive after it was finished backing up the files.
