Hard Drive connected to AT&T Uverse Router, how to share it?

I've connected an external USB HD to my router so I can use it to share files.

 

I don't see anywhere to turn on sharing or to map the drive? How can I do that?

 

I got the idea from here...

The USB ports on ATT gateways are disabled except for being used as a charging port. 

 

Been this way for several years.

This thread was suggested to me by the AT&T wizard when I was searching to add a hard drive to my router to use for backups. If I understand this brief exchange, it is not possible to add a hard drive to the router and use for backing up data?

What's the Final Word here then? One CAN or CANNOT add external storage to ATT Uverse? Thank you.
