I have a new customer that is running VERY old hardware and software. He wants to try and wait one year before upgrading as he will have to buy both the hardware and licenses.
He has a win2000 server with a C drive and E drive. The OS is on the C drive and the data is on the E drive which is 3 scsi drives with striped array. (36gb each). (No backup) Drive 2 has errors. I did a backup, there were 4 files with CRC errors. He would like to me clone the 3 drives.
As his equipment is very old, I'd like to try and get it done as quickly as possible. For the backup, I just copied the E drive to an external drive and when it had an error, I just skipped that file. I'm worried about the possible cloning, putting the new drives in and then the system doesn't recognize it or the raid is screwed up.
I would appreciate any guidance you could give me.
