Server Recovery on its Way

Server Recovery on its Way

So, my server is working again - to some extent. The main OS drive was swapped, the server recovered, a drive added via USB... the database is being duplicated and the neyxt step is to remove the offending drive and think about the next step...

I guess I will need to buy another 2TB drive as I really don't want to go through the hassle of getting WHS v1 (based on Server 2003) to work with larger drives...

Anyway, as I puilled the drives, I was able to run WindirStat on my HomeServer's OS drive - besides the OS it apparently houses some sort of file mapping... given that it contains the information of all files (without duplication) on the server: Well, this is how the data on my server looks :) (the big blocks are 4GB files that contain client computer recovery data)
