After failing to repair a Windows installation with the Windows CD, I am faced with reinstalling Windows on a server. The file corruption has been faithfully backed up to tape so that the backup tapes are of little use to me now. Fortunately this server was only used to manage and backup data and files for five users.
I am under the impression that I can do a manual Windows Backup of User data and User files to another PC in the network, and then I would reinstall Windows and restore the backed up information to this machine. Would that work? Can anyone point me to a good checklist for rebuilding a little domain like this? Thanks in advance, - ggordon777
