So, for about the last 6 years I have been enjoying my Acer Aspire AH340-UA230N Home Server
A few weeks ago a transformer blew outside of my apt complex and the power surge fried the network card and god knows what else. I have it loaded with 7 TB of data ( tax stuff, old photos, system back ups for all the computers in the house, music, personal art stuff, etc, etc). The problem is that the only way to get to it is via network in or windows home server consol,e as it has no video output. Since the network card is shot I cant do much. I took it to a local repair shop and they said they cant do anything since it has no video output.
My question is since I am running folder duplication on it (I forget what Raid exactly its running) and its running Windows Home server, if I picked up a new case for it and moved the hard drives over, do you think it would boot and I would be able to recover the data?
Suggestions on how to get that delicious data off the drives, or if anyone has been in the same boat and tried something like plugging the drives into another box running FreeNAS? Any suggestions would help greatly. =)
