The original problem was yesterday when the user would click his mapped drive to the server c:/themainserver/bridgette. Well when he clicked on the shared drive and went to c:/themainserver/bridgette it would load a few times and allow him to edit the files and then when he would go to save everything it would freeze up and he would not be able to save any files.
When I was on the machine yesterday (The Actual Server) I was able to find the bridgette folder and started to copy it to a usb drive and it would fail after 30 seconds. I tried 2-3 times and same issue. I rebooted the machine and her whole profile disappeared. I read online there are issue with profiles and windows server 08 but how would I go about getting the profile back? There are no server backups. I just took this job over so I'm slowly working to get it up to the proper standard.
The server has a RAID setup but idk what kind. The BIOS doesn't show me much at all. The hard drives plug into a controller. I'm unable to hook either drive to an external pc because the hard drive has AIO for the sata cable and power adapter. I cant plug them into the drive individually
Now when I boot the pc it says "reboot and select proper boot device" in the BIOS, I have that hard drive set to boot first. I'm not a RAID pro but i think the RAID was setup to mirror. There were some files I needed off of it.
I have a newer server I'm going to move everything to assuming I can get this booted somehow so I can pull the data.
This is an older server also. I don't know why it wont boot anymore? any ideas? is it something with the RAID? I guess any suggestions as to why it wont boot all the sudden then ill try to figure out the profile issue.
