Upgrade from DIY WHS to acer H340 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm upgrading from a DIY WHS PP2 (that has worked great) to an Acer h340 to try and save on energy.  I'm thinking I need to uninstall the connector software on my computers and reinstall the Acer software that comes with the new box (which I don't have yet).  I would then do a backup of all the computers.   I know I will lose all previous backups.  I have my shares backed up to an external drive currently.  Would I then be able to restore those shares to the new setup ?  I realize there will be a fair amount of configuration to be done.  What other gremins are lurking in the shadows ?

  • Your plan sounds like a good one to me. :)

    To answer your question, yes you should be able to restore your shares onto the new server.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
