DrivePool Marking Internal Drive As External

I'm pretty sure it's not harmful - I have 4 drives in an enclosure that was originally connected through USB3 and therefore considered external.  A few months ago I switched the enclosure to eSata but the drives are still considered external.  I assume it's because they were external when added to the pool.

Nonetheless, it irks me that they are considered external! :-)  But it's not so important that I'd be prepared to remove them one drive at a time and re-add (along with the balancing etc) just to get that internal designation.

Anyway, I've seen no problems arising due to the incorrect designation and this is over a period of 3 or 4 months.

Thanks for the response.

I was considering removing and re-adding the drive just to get rid of the external label but, like you, I decided it's not worth the effort if it's just a label with no actual consequences.
