Server not responding _ software or hardware??
Posted on 2014-03-16
I recently changed a RAID 1 and this took around 20 hrs to rebuild and when it did it took around 3 hours to Windows to start sticking on computer and user settings for around 70 minutes each.
Anyway, when it did start up the programs were not responding. Click and nothing.
I had a backup using SSR 2011 that had everything except for a couple of hours work so to save time I reinstalled the system partition with a view to reloading the data when everything was up and running.
All was fine until I went to recover the data from the backup and the system stopped responding again both by mouse and keyboard.
I've not experienced this before - is this likely to be hardware or software?
One other strange thing, the RAID drives aren't seen when the uSB backup drive is connected.
Thanks for any ideas.
