I'm hoping that someone would be kind enough to tell me if this is possible:

Trying to use USB external (3TB) to copy certain project folders containing data on 2008 R2 for offsite storage. Our workstations run win 7 64 and each has stand alone CAD. Intent is to be able to copy project data to a PC in the event of server crash and continue work until server is back up.

I have copied some data at server (ext is G as test but when I connect to PC (Win 7 Pro 64) no drive in Win Explorer but I can see it in Device Manager. I was asked to implement the offsite backup and provide support for our network. Am just starting to learn Server 2008 so really appreciate any thoughts and suggestions. Thanks guys and gals.
