and the reason why, I had a massive system crash after a reformat. I formatted my server and PC's and set aside 12 hours of my life to bring them back. I had backed up and took screen shots and used Acronis True Image Server 8.0 as well as True image for PC's
You would think that would be enough wouldn’t you. Well it might have been but my server decided to get poorly just as I was rebuilding and my new drive with all the apps installed would not accept the disks (all 47 of them) it reckoned they were corrupted.
I had just installed SP2 so I started again and ran a slipstream, still no good, I had to run and open every file I need individually.
Backup as much you like, sometime the gods look at you and just grin.
Warning !!! This machine is subject to breakdowns during periods of critical need.
A special circuit in the machine called a CRITICAL NEED DETECTOR senses the operator's emotional state in terms of how desperate he or she is to use the machine. The CRITICAL NEED DETECTOR then creates a malfunction proportional to the desperation of the operator. Threatening the machine with violence only aggrevates the situation. Likewise, attempts to use another machine may cause it also to malfunction. They belong to the same union. Keep cool and say nice things to the machine, Nothing else seems to work.
When all else fails you must RTFM it (Read The Flipping Manual).
