DFI LANPARTY UT NF4 SLI-DR Expert (SATA HOTSWAP?)

Recommended Posts

Do I purchased an external 1TB e-sata drive to use for backups.

 

Problem is, that windows does not detect the drive when it powers on for a weekly backup.

 

Any suggestions? I would appear Hotswap is not enabled for this MB? It is starting to show it's age...

 

I might have to use the USB2.0 option to get it to do what I want but e-sata is ALOT faster, and I paid for the feature so I would MUCH rather use that if possible.

 

I found some 3rd party software that will make all HDD's removable devices but if there is a simpler better solution than adding ANOTHER icon to my task bar, then by all means post it up!

On this board it is only hot swappable in windows and only if you install the nvidia storage driver.

 

Then you will see the add remove icon by the clock.

 

And you must use the nvidia SATA ports, not the Silicon image ones.

I wanted to let you know installing the Nvidia drivers did make the drive hot swappable, however they crash my system (auto-restarts) once a week and would not pass windows verifier.exe on startup (cause an imeadiate blue screen)
