Formatting a new disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • After the disk crashed of one of my WHS clients I replaced the disk with a new one and put in the WHS Restore CD. Does this program take care of formatting the disk or do you have to do that yourself (full or quick)? This is not explained in the helpfile.

  • I've had the opportunity/misfortune of having to use the restore for a simular issue.  The restore disk will format your new drive for you.  If the new drive is larger than the previous one you can also make it use the whole disk instead of the old image size.  This restore works like a champ.  I was very happy with the results.  Hope this helps...
