Like Justin, ran into the server detecting the USB drive and the backup software using it with scheduled, automatic backups.

but, I still use the USB device as the backup source [use 2 identical devices]. I simply manually run the backups. One goes off site the other one stays onsite and we swap em once a week.

It's an inexpensive alternative to tape if you can do manual backups.
