Transferring Back-up to Recovered Disk Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I recently had to initiate a factory reset on my WHS, and I took out the back-up hard drive before initiating the reset.  I have successfully reset my WHS; my question is how do I transfer the backed-up hard-drive information to the reset hard drive?

    Thank you.

  • Assuming by "back-up hard drive" you mean a drive you had installed and designated as a server backup drive, you reconnect the drive. Windows Home Server should recognize it as a backup drive and you should be able to restore from it to your shares.

    If, however, you mean a drive that was part of the storage pool, you'll need to see this FAQ .

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