Emergency Recovery CD doesn't see 2TB+ SATA drives?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I downloaded the Emergency Recovery CD a few days ago to test my local recovery process. My daily Retrospect catalog and backups are stored on a 2TB WD Caviar Green SATA drive (WD20EADS). Unfortunately, in the recovery PE enviroment, Retrospect does not see that drive at all.


My two other 1TB SATA drives are detected, however.


Is this a known issue? Any fix or workaround possible?

The WinPE Retrospect used is similar to Windows Vista. So if windows Vista can't recognize your HDD automatically, Retrospect WinPE can't either.

If this is your case, I think you have to manually install driver for your HDD on the Retrospect WinPE. By the way, there is a button in the emergency recovery environment to do so.
