Restore WHS v1 backup onto new Advanced File System Drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My laptop's drive is about to fail. I am about to buy a new drive, but it seems most feature the Advanced File System. I have the machine backup up automatically by WHS v1.

    I know that WHS v1 does not support the Advanced File System for its own drives. But is there an issue restoring a backup image taken on a non-AFS drive to one that is AFS. The OS on the laptop in Win7 x64, so it should not be an issue from the laptop's perspective.

  • I don't think there should be an issue, but you might want to consider seeing what the manufacturer of the drive recommends.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
