restore data drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't seem to find any information that addresses my issue here. I have WHS2011 and the data drive has failed. I have a server backup drive on an external USB drive and all the backups there appear to be fine. I just can't figure out how to replace the failed drive and restore the old data to the new drive from the USB drive. The USB drive is backing up the data drive as well as the system drive. I go through what appear to be the correct steps but the USB drive is not available as a source even though it is obviously present and is the only drive assigned to server backup.

  • The basis steps are to physically replace the drive, recreate the shares and run a restore. See here:
