I’ve successfully installed MBL 2TB as a network and using it as the main data storage. It’s plugged into my Wifi router rather than to the actual computer. I’ve uploaded the new release Firmware version 2. 01.06 to allow backing up of the contents of My Book LIve to an external disk drive.
I’ve got a 1TB Seagate external drive connected via USB to my laptop, which is what I’d like to use as the back up to MBL. However, when I use MBL Dashboard - go to Backups - go to My Book Live Backups tab - then click create - then discover… only the laptop is discovered and not the external drive. I’ve pressed refresh discoveries, but still can’t see it.
How can I force the MBL to discover the external drive, so the external drive can do automatic backups of the MBL?
