    I want to add another disk to a working sql cluster.
    the sql cluster is installed on S: drive .
    when i try to backup/restore databases from the enterprise manager to the new drive , i only see s: drive .

    what should i do ?

    Perform as follows to add new disk :
    - Add the disk to a node and perform NTFS format
    - Create a new 'Physical Disk' resource in cluster administrator
    - Make SQL Server dependant on the new disk (in additional to the drives that it is already dependant on)

    To make a cluster resource visible to SQL Server make sure the disk drive in question is added to the SQL Server cluster group.
