How to recreate accidentally deleted C:\fs folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my carelessness I accidentally deleted the C:\fs folder on my system partition. Is there any facility available that can recreate the folder and my volume mount points?

    P.S. I believe my data are safe as I have two other disk drives in my WHS.

    Thanks,
    Douglas

  • I appreciate Ken's response. But, for anyone else who gets into this predicament, the correct action to take is to DO NOTHING! The amazing people behind the WHS software were wise enough to foresee such carelessness as I have exhibited and built in a mechanism to automatically recreate the folder and all volume mounting points within. I'm guessing the migrator service is behind this amazing feat. Give your "hosed" system some time, and all shall be good again.

  • Server reinstallation is the supported method.

  • More likely the issue was corrected after a reboot (to install updates). But the supported method for fixing just about any issue with Windows Home Server would be a reinstallation, since the server is designed for headless operation.
