Removable Storage

Removable Storage is another tool within Computer Management. Its job is to track and catalog the data stored on removable storage devices. These devices can take the form of tape backup drives, MO drives, JAZ drives, or the changers that control many removable storage devices. The Removable Storage Manager works by allowing you to create media pools—collections of media to which the same management properties (such as security permissions or backup routines) apply.

Removable Storage is another of those “buried” Windows XP features that you’re not likely to know about unless you know where to look. Open the Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management. In the right pane, expand Storage and click Removable Storage. From here, you can create and manage media pools and also get information about the physical locations for media.
