Which to do 1st, new sys drive then OS reinstall, or other way around? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The issue - Original WHS with all PPs installed, 160 gig sys drive and 4x1TB data drives, plus attached NAS with 4x2TB drives in it, all homebuilt a few years back.

    For last year the ability to backup computers has been spotty, now not happening at all. I think I need to perform a 'restore/repair' install of the OS.

    Also, getting messages that sys drive is failing, I have bought a new one the same size.

    My question, which step first, replace the sys drive then perform the restore, or other way around?
