Simply format the USD drive and run lsblk command to detect the USB drive.

500GB? I only see option for up to 256 GB USB stick.

According to their website, your server will be rebooted in order to enable USB ports. So you should look at your uptime (Run "uptime") to see when it was rebooted. The new media may not automatically mount if it is not properly formatted, so it's better to look on /dev to see if there's anything new there(Run "ls /dev"). Usuarlly, you should get ona "sdX" for each hard drive installed on your server(not counting the sdXY for each partition), so, if your server has two HDDs(sda & sdb), your USB stick would be "sdc".
