Hi my W2K8 Server crashed and I had to get new hardware in, there is no image backup so basically I will have to restore from backup at a file level.

Is there a guide on the steps by step on how to do this without impacting the clients connected to it too much? Or do we have to start from scratch. Any help would be appreciated. I am stressed!
