Windows Home Server - Ultimate Test

indyjones Adventurer
Hi all

Putting my new server through a massive test as one of the two new hard drives for it is broken :( Currently running the remove hard-drive wizard so we shall see what happens...... Hopefully it should be ok all the data fitted on the first disk and the second was just for duplicated files

We Shall See.........

Wish me luck

Not good the dodgy drive is the one with windows on it, i think that means if i install home server onto my new disk I believe it formats it first except that is where all my good non-corrupted data is .......
I think the only way around this is to borrow a hard drive from someone if possible, otherwise or hope that my replacement drive arrives before I have to send the old one back.....

Unfortunately not, one drive (with windows on it) is dying the other has the good versions of all my files, so if I install on that disk I lose a lot of data :(

thats what i mean remove the 2nd drive - then reinstall and whs should only format the first drive as its the only one it can see - unless theres a minimum requirement of 2 drives before it will install ?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
