I had a Windows Home Server (not 2011) that finally up and died on me. Instead of going through the effort of re-installing an outdated OS, I decided to install Windows Server Essentials 2012, since that's supposed to be the new offering in this area.
I had 2 500GB drives & 1 320GB drive in my old server configured as JBOD. Several folders were flagged to be redundant.
Everything with the install went great & I'm liking the new server. However when I plug in my drives from my old server, I have several small drives with folders in them, which if I check the properties, it's showing 400GB+ on a 120GB partition (so I'm assuming this a pointer of some sort). Then a 490GB partition that appears to be completely empty.
So, how can I get my data "back" so that it doesn't look like I have an empty 500GB drive out there & things look normal again?
Sorry for being so long winded.
