The sad news is that NT does not have USB support. NT will not recognize a USB port, let alone what is attached to it.

I hope this helps you towards finding an alternatice disaster recovery method.

I doubt it supports USB 2.0, but there is a third party software package that offers "LIMITED" USB support for Windows NT.

If you need USB support, my best recommendation is to upgrade to Windows Server 2000 or 2003.

USB is not widely supported in NT4, there are some third party drivers but its hit and miss.
You could try Firewire support instead which is faster than USB and can plug in External Hard disks etc.
