NTFS and FAT32/ Windows 2000 to Windows 2003

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Charles A. Lackman, Dec 2, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    I have an NTFS Formated SATA Drive that is running Windows Server 2003 and I
    am transferring a Quick Books Database (200 megs) onto it from an IDE Drive
    that has Windows Server 2000 on it. Whenever I try to copy the database
    over to the SATA drive (which by the way is RAIDed), the database always
    gets corrupted. I have copied the database by using a CD Rom, Using the
    network, and by connecting the IDE drive directly to the 2003 Server.
    Everyway I attempt to copy the database from the old machine to the new one
    corrupts the database. Is there something I should know when attempting to
    do this? Could something be wrong with the RAID?

    Both machines have the same permissions on the same folders.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

  2. If you have tried a number of different ways, I would suspect a problem with
    your new hard drive/controller configuration. See it there are any
    diagnostics you can run on the controller and each hard drive from the
    manufacturer. You might try to image your database using Ghost or such, or
    Ntbackup using backup/restore to transfer it but even if it works I would
    still be sure to thoroughly test your new hard drive array. My son had a lot
    of trouble getting RAID to work on his home server with it initially working
    and then being problems like poor performance to total crashes using IDE
    RAID. People I have talked to said they will use nothing but SCSI for RAID
    array in a business environment . Yes the initial investment is higher but
    the performance will be better along with the reliability especially if you
    go with a company like Adaptec for the controller. --- Steve
