Completed the repartitioning and formating but still seeing problems. Using the WD diagnostic tools, I did a quick zeros write and format. The WD diag tools report a 3.0TB disk, not 746GB. The server still sees a 746GB disk instead of the 2.8TB. Moved the drive to a Win7 machine, Win7 sees the drive as 746GB in Disk Management and diskpart. Are there any utilities that will completely clear the disk to factory "settings"?
I have 2 files on the C drive of my home server both install.esd the first C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\Windows\x64\sources is 3GB in size, the second C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\Windows\x86\sources is 2.1Gb in size, can I delete them freeing up 5GB of my C drive?
I have WHS2012 setup with few computers connected to it. Data on the server in folders: Computer client Backups and file history Backups, were deleted manually by accident and after this happened backup status for computers did not show correctly. I removed all the computers from the server and run backup clean up and then I removed connector software from each computer, idea being that i can re-connected each one and make backups again. Each time I run connector software to setup each computer, software installs OK, I run through setup and it finds my server, I login but then during setup after bit of while it stops with error as in the screenshot.
