WHS Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can someone confirm my thoughts please.
    If i want an exact Image of my WHS ( only has 1 hard drive ), surely all i need to do is ...
    Boot to Acronis CD and Dump the image to an attached usb drive of suffiecient capacity ?
    If have done this many times with XP, so why not with WHS. After all it is just 1's and 0's on a hard disk !

    cheers, John.

  • Why not?
    1. It's unsupported.
    2. Using imaging tools to move the OS (or any Windows Home Server data) from one disk to another has, for some users, caused serious problems because of the way Windows Home Server identifies disks.

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