Synchronized Files After Server HD Crash
Posted on 2006-11-03
I've had the unthinkable happen. We took a power surge, which crashed the heads on our data drive, and my offsite backup is corrupt (sting).
I have one user whose PC was synchronizing the My Documents folder with a share on that drive.
After removing the drive and sending it off for data recovery, my user reports that he was able to open, modify, and save files which were on that network drive. I thought he must've been mistaken, but when I look at the recent documents folder, it shows some of these documents and a last opened date AFTER the network drive was removed, indicating to me that he actually was able to open them.
Anyway, I've tried searching for these files on both the remaining server hard drive and the local hard drive and can't come up with anything.
Can anyone explain what might be happening here? If the files are actually hiding on the local drive it would be REALLY nice to be able to restore them.
