I am having a problem with SBS 2008, all of a sudden i wont let me log in, it locks up at CTRL ALT DELETE. I can get in via safe mode and access the drives but not sure why it just hangs
at the login stage. While in safe mode most services are not running.

I am willing to reload the sever but desperately need to backup the companyweb calendar as it has a lot of important dates for installations.

I have tried using the STSADM -o export -url http://companyweb -filename E:\cwebexport.bak -overwrite -includeusersecurity command but get the error "The Web application at http://companyweb could not be found"

A lot of the services are not running in safe mode and dont know how to at least backup the files I need.

I would appreciate any comments, tutorials, alternate methods. I am a bit desperate


Thanks in advance.

can you access your companyweb through http://companyweb on that server?

then you can't back up companyweb through stsadm.  You could backup the ##SSEE database, which contains companyweb.  You'd need to manually recreate the entries on the new server, but you'd have the data.

That sounds good enough, what would be the best way to do that. As mentioned not many tools working from safe mode so i cannot do a backup but would just copying the files be sufficient????

Appreciate your thoughts..

You can find the location in sql server management studio for sure by right clicking the database and choosing properties.  You'll need both the MDF and the LDF files.  It should be in here though:
 C:\Windows\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\Data
