  1. Thanks for the advise. Since this was a pooled drive in WHS, how can I access and retrieve specific files/folders from a PC connection?
  2. Sadly, I think you are right. My only hope that the failed drive can be made operable enough to retrieve the data. I so, what procedure would you recommend to get it back? Make a copy of the repaired drive or insert it back into the WHS box and make a backup or ???
  3. Thank you. The oldest date for a .vhd file is 9/1/19. I think you are right about over writing. When I installed the new drive I failed to uncheck the box to back up "Videos" (689 GB). I normally don't do a server back up for videos so that is what took up so much space. I still hope there is some way to recover my lost data. Thanks for your help. If you have any other suggestions please pass along.
  4. No, I did not have duplication. Please see images for more info. I don't know how to isolate the BUP HDD in explorer to view date created. Would it matter that the drives in the pool were renamed when the new HDD was added?
  5. WHS 2011 System set up is: C:/ SSD, Two 2TB HDD in the pool, One 2 TB as system backup (USB external). I had a failing drive. System backup only did a partial backup. I replaced the drive, let DP do its work, then found a lot of missing files. I assume they were on the failed drive. When I try to do a restore files from the external drive, I can only access ones the were created after the new drive was installed. All previous backups listed are grayed out and not accessible for retrieval. I think the data is still on the external system backup drive but I don't know how to retrieve it. Any suggestions? Thank you.
