Is there an issue with SSR 2013 and either:
1-Seagate Backup Plus external hard drives
2-External hard drives of 2 gig or larger
I have recently had difficulty having SSR 2013 desktop recognizing these external drives.
I eventually get them to work but they are not immediately recognized as drives by SSR.
Keep in mind though I am talking about my experience with the server version but the 4K sector size is a huge issue.
At least with server edition, if you are talking about 2 TB drives (you mentioned GB I believe in error) and "off-site" drives and they have a 4K sector size, they will never work as off-site drives if you expect them to SYNC immediately when you attach them. This is a known bug ( I actually found it):
I then used 1.5 TB drives (512 sector size) and it kinda works, but not consistently. And now I am being told by Symantec with my new problem (both drives wont sync) that if expect to have a set of two off-site drives, the immeiate sync will only work to the first set.
