  • Question

  • Hello,

    How big of hard drive do I need to back up the Windows Server V1 operating system by itself? I have all of the shares backedup through folder duplication.  However, I would like to back the OS if it becomes corrputed.

  • There's no supported way to back up the system partition. The supported recovery option for Windows Home Server V1 was (V1 has been out of support for a couple of years now) a server reinstallation/recovery. While you could use third party tools to back up the system partition, this is unsupported and results are not always good.

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