  1. Thank you. Bitwar was able to locate thousands of files but very few of them were complete. Looks like the only solution at this point is to try to repair and recover from the damaged drive. Not holding much hope for that.
  2. Thank you for the suggestions but the pooled drive is toast. Drive heads are badly damaged. No way to recover. Recapping and wondering if this is and option: I replaced a failing hdd in the server. I thought it would be a good idea to do a server backup to my external USB drive first. I normally don't back up "Videos" (about 900 GB) by unchecking the box. This time I forgot to do that so the next backup made space by deleting my old backups. The result is the old backups are grayed out and not accessible and half my data is missing. I did not make shadow copies. I know, lots of mistakes on my part. Is there a way to recover this data? Perhaps a data recovery program that will make overwritten or deleted files recoverable?
  3. 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?
  4. 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 ???
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
