    Thanks for providing some information about what is being done. Just wish this didn’t take so L-O-N-G here.

    I’m pretty convinced that my windows home server backup process was affected by this problem.

    The link that I get taken to related to my problem is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946339 and I’ve not got any unhealthy hard disks, though I do have four hard disks in my home server. (It’s an HP unit that came with one hard disk, and I’ve added three hard disks over the past three months.)

    If I log in using remote desktop connection, and look at the event log, I get this message: Unexpected error 0x26 from unexpected EOF on D:\folders\{00008086-058D-4C89-AB57-A7F909A47AB4}\Index.4096.dat: Reached the end of the file.

    I’m guessing that WHS uses the redirector to spread backups across multiple drives.

    I don’t really know what to do. If WHS backups are not going to be recoverable, why bother using it? I had a couple of machines that were backed up to my server, assuming that unless the catastrophic happened, I’d be able to recover from the machine. One of those machines crashed about a month ago, and I did a test recovery on it to prove that I could, but had to delete that for another reason. I was under the assumption that my SERVER that is UPS protected would stay stable.
