Failing, but not gone....need help!


Recommended Posts

Hi all!


Related to subject, my OS drive on my EX485 acted funny last night and said the drive was failing. I pulled it out and currently runny Spinrite on the drive to check. My question is: Can I use Ghost to clone the drive to another and replace it should I need? If I can, can the drives be different sizes? I have some 1TB's as spares, would WHSv1 freak out and crash?





Update - Spinrite ran for over a day and did not find a single error on the drive (good news). I plugged the drive back in to the server and booted up. The server complained about backup database errors and requested a check. I ran the database check and all of my PC backups were corrupt and thus deleted! (horrible news!!). Now the WHS console and even remote desktop are sluggish/non-responsive (OK, they hang). What would be the best thing to do at this point?


Thanks again!
