just to let you know, you can restore a essentials server 2016 backup by booting from a dvd of server 2016 standard/datacenter. it will even be activated ok but it won't be an essentials server anymore.

so those of you fortunate enough to have multiple server licenses/disks etc. please be careful when you are under the stress of a dead C: ssd...

some more hard knocks observations:

* the first time this new animal hits server backup it will delete your old server save points.

* if you have to re-build c: from scratch it should activate ok

* if your client backups are intact on another disk, you will initially see only the new ones, but if you 'repair' the backups all the old ones will show up as 'archived'.

 

bottom line, not too big a deal except for the lost time.
