SBS 2008 Recovery Help
Posted on 2014-04-10
I was having issues with the SBS C:\ running out of disk space and shutting the POP3 connector down.
So to alieviate the problem I used PArtition Master from Easeus to increase the size of the C:\ from the storage drive.
Now unfortunately it was left for 48hour and hung, so after tring everything else I have had to restart the machine and the partitions are obviously messed up.
So, the server is a DEll PowerEdge, with two SATAs running in a RAID configuration. Can any one suggest a the best steps to take trying to recover the server?
1. Is it possible (i know unlikely) for me to try and use the SBS server disc to repair itself?
2. As the drive is running 2x SATA in a RAID configuration is there anything I can do here to try and recover?
3. I have two more SATA drive slots in the machine, I am thinking of purchasing additional sata, installing and recovering to these and then recoviring what I can (if anyting was missed from the backup from the backup drives) from the original satas.
The server has been backed up to a external usb hd drive. So everything should be on here.
Any advice here would be gratefully accepted.
