I was boasting to some of my co-workers yesterday that my Windows Home Server (WHS) had my entire home network backed up and that is my recovery plan for a failed hard disk on one of the home computers.
I was then asked what I'd do if the boot hard disk failed on the (HP MediaSmart) WHS or if some other hardware component (such as the built in network card) failed. How do I recover from that?
I don't have an answer for that...
So my questions are:
- Can WHS duplicate its boot partition onto the other disks in the server? (If so, is this automatically done?)
- How do you recover if the boot partition fails?
- How do you recover if other hardware fails?
