How can I make a USB drive on R7000 visible to backup software?

My 1TB external Seagate USB drive is visible to Windows 10 File Explorer when connected to the R7000. But EaseUS Partition software cannot see it and Macrium Reflect backup software cannot see it. But that software can see the drive when connected to a USB port on the desktop computer. How can I make the drive accessible when connected to the R7000?

Working here with EaseUS Todo Backup and a Readyshare USB drive.

 

Have you checked the settings? Proper access? No password?

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

You can also try making it (the USB drive) a Network share and give it a drive letter and always connect on boot and use it. Also might try using the share name and see if that works? No password on the share of course as well as mentioned above. At one time I did have a password and not many things worked with the USB drive that way, they are not programmed to ask for a p/w,
