Backup Drive Full, have 2TB avail, can't browse
I'm embarrassed. Here I am, a 30 year IT veteran, use Networker as a handle on many sites, but can't resolve my own problem.
My little HP USB insert-able hard drive is full. Last Backup failed. Shouldn't be an issue, I have probably 1-2 drives hanging off each PC on my little 10 PC network.
NOTE: No XP on any of these. I understand those sharing issues.
I can see the drive on "Computer" mapped as drive G: Grayson ( my grandson)
Vista Home on dual cpu E2160's 1.80Ghz ( This was my first build and I'm sentimental about it, it's going to go before long, right now I have a Windows Important Update that fails and fails ) I'll build a new one and put this C: drive in it and use WET or, just pick the programs I really have to have. It's been running non stop for almost 3 years.
Why won't the backup setup program let me browse to that drive? All it shows is Network at the top and the other PC's under that. All USB connected drives are NTFS.
I have not set up a folder for backup on that Linksys dual bay G: drive. No permission are set, it is wide open.

I would get Partition Magic. It's owned by someone else now, but it's the same interface and works fine. I check to see if I could "explore" my Seagate backup and I could.
