Exchange Database - sbs 2011
Posted on 2011-10-02
We had a hyper v server go down today. I will skip over the history but basically the main c:\ drive partition VHD some how corrupted itself. I managed to restore to a previous version that i took a couple of weeks ago and the server has booted ok, but i'm left with the following issues relating to exchange
The backup copy i took had all data located locally on the c:\ partition. I have since migrated everything across to the d:\ partition including all exchange data, sharepoint, wsus, shared folders etc. So that data is safe - but i'm not sure how i can get sbs to look at that data without overwriting it.
The data was originally moved using the move data wizards - but i'm assuming if i try to do this again it will overwrite the newest copy with a copy from the c:\ partition. Is it possible to simply copy and overwrite the c:\ copy then move it again using the wizard?
If not how can fix this? It's quite urgent!
