    Hi guys,

    The company who I rent our dedicated whm server from has just attached a external hard drive for us to back up to.
    Does anyone have any instructions on how to do this? Currently I am using the back up to back up to itself.

    I cant even get WHM to see the new drive!

    Hello :)

    Do you see the drive mounted? Run these commands to verify it's added to your system:

    Code:
    mount
    cat /etc/fstab
    Thank you.
