I created a backup job using the backup utility that comes with Windows
Server 2008. The backups are scheduled to occur every Friday night. I'm
having a problem trying to backup to a flash drive. The backup is failing
because everytime I plug in the flash drive, the server asks as if it the
flash drive needs to be formatted. If I format the flash drive, the job runs
fine, but when I plug the same drive in the following week, I get the must be
formatted message again. What am I missing?

Hello Candace,

You can use GPO or local security policy to prevent flash drive from
prompting message every time you plugged it in
