WHS REINSTALL FREEZING RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to reinstall WHS and when it gets to the finalization it freezes about a quarter of the way thru.  i've tried to reinstall and get to about the same place.  Unknown what to do.  Is there another way to retrieve my customers artwork off the drive. 

    thanks

  • It's probably rebuilding the primary data partition. Leave the server alone. Depending on the amount of data on the server, you could be looking at anywhere from hours to days at that stage.

    Make sure your customer has backups of all their data, by the way. The duplication feature of DE only protects against a disk failure, not against force majeure events: fire, flood, theft, etc. Use your imagination as gruesomely as you like. :) For disaster recovery, off-site backups are your best choice.


    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
