We recently lost our Small Business server whilst installing SP3 for Exchange. Upon rebooting the hard drive attribute were changed to "Read only" and the operating system was unable to access the hard drive (well nothing could, not Fdisk, CHKDSK or so on)
We recovered using and image of the drive but notice that the normal 8 Megs partition at the end of the drive is now 70.6 megs. We have scanned the hard drive offline and found it to be free from any errors, viruses or such like and the Small Business Server seems to run happily.
I am wandering if this can be left at the new size as we are only using basic disks and have no immediate plans to run RAID.
