    This can be perform from the Windows Home server only so if you are looking to add the external hard drive then connect the drive and then go to the Windows Home Server and then to the server storage tab there you will find the this external drive but not yet connected. Now right click on the same and click on the Add. This will install the same on your Windows Home server. Thats it!!!!!
