    • Confused about 2TB limit and Server backup - which fails
      By smb56 · Posted
      Got it. Now I can figure things out from here. 
    • Confused about 2TB limit and Server backup - which fails
      By andrewNZ · Posted
      I think what's happening is you're trying to backup more than 3TB of data to a 3TB drive. Unless you've done something fancy and combined the disks, WHS only backs up to one disk at a time (or at least thats how I understand it). Adding multiple drives for backup is primarily to enable disk swapping for rotating off site backups.
    • Confused about 2TB limit and Server backup - which fails
      By smb56 · Posted
      WHS 2011 with 2 - 2TB drives with a 256gb SSD drive. I have all folders on the 2-2TB hard drives and am trying to back up to 2-3TB hard drives. The 2 - 2TB drives are about 3/4 full and I should have plenty of room on the 2-3TB hard drives for backup. When I try a Server backup, it tells me that I either need more RAM (running DDR3 - 16GB 1333 speed) or I don't have enough storage. Should I add another 3TB hard drive? Should I add more RAM. All HDs with the exception of the SSD are same brand and same model for their respective sizes.    Thanks for any help,
    • sys drive @ 20GB has <1% free space
      By effendenby · Posted
      Hi. Geriatric newbie question. My sys drive is almost completely filled. Out of the 20 GB in the partition(original 500GB HDD w/ 20GB partition for sys)there is less than 800MB of free space. Is this normal? Is there anything I should be deleting. I do have MSSE running as my A/V. I have 3-2TB WD20 EARS-00MVWB0 as well in the EX470. I did not move to the 3.0 software upgrade.  
    • The "Holy Grail": WMC on 2011 servers, now is possible !!!
      By The Solutor · Posted

      First of all I have yet to assemble the instructions on a single post (I'll do ASAP, but I'm pretty busy right now) they are scattered on two or three post, given this is a "byproduct" of the long work  done to get WMC working on W10.

      Secondly, I think that there isn't a single person in the world that has all the knowledge needed to get that result, the credits for that results belongs to many people and all of them are MDL users, no matter if involved on WMC on W10 developent. Developers of the tools needed and people who spent literally months experimenting at home the partly finished work.

      On my side I had this dream since a lot of time, and I spent good time to port to WHS what we discovered on W10.

      Given the above I would consider inrespectful for the devs involved to post blatantly just the end result somewhere else.

      I'll surely support here who want to have WMC on WHS-2011 (and his brother SSE 2008r2, and his cousin SBS 2011) but the main thread belongs to MDL.
