My dad told me his WHS 2011 server was not backing up, and so I went and looked at it. Since WHS misbehavior troubleshooting requires a brain the size of Jupiter, I'm not sure I have the source of the problem, but according to the Event Viewer one of the hard drive mirrors (two 1TB HDD in a RAID 1 mirror) has bad sectors, and in fact WHS can see both drives, which makes think the drive hardware is not longer running them as a raid. I know all the drives are old, so I told him to buy new ones.
In prep for new ones, I told WHS to move the Client Backup folder from the bad drive to another data drive. Ir ran for a bit, and then tossed some errors (that my dad didn't catch) and tried to revert the move. That also threw an error and stopped.
Can I just replace the bad HDD and then tell WHS to re-create the folder and not worry about the old backups on the bad drive? What will WHS do when it can't find the Client Backup share?
