Ok, time to start the reinstallation of WHS (Windows Home Server) process.
From last time, I believe that Windows Home Server is particularly greedy. Any (and by that I mean ALL) hard drives attached to the computer will be claimed by WHS. It will potentially format all of the data.
[I will confirm this is the case when I get to this step.]
I believe there is an option to reinstall or new installation. I plan to go with a new installation as I have previously hacked windows settings. So in order to do this I need to back up onto a hard drive which I need to disconnect during installation.
To do this you need to remove a hard drive from the current pool used by WHS. And it is not kidding when it says it can take hours!
This is a worry as this installation of WHS is restarting every hour! (due to expired trial licence)
