What do the home server options repair disk and backup repair do? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Home server gave me the following in February 2011:

    "Volume with name DE secondary volume is failing. Please try to run Repair for (the name of the disk)."

    I ran repair from Server Storage tab.  Subsequently no reported issues. I have been trying to do a bare metal backup/install from the server to a new hard drive and have had the dreaded i/o server error issue. I have also run database repair from the home server setup tab.

    Question: Home server states that repair (from the storage tab) runs check disk.  Why am I being directed in this forum to run checkdisk from a dos prompt? Is the utility in Home Server faulty?

    Home server is supposed to monitor itself and let me know if there are issues that would prevent its being used as intended.

    Is there a way to rely on this?

    Any comment appreciated...
