Great post and question. Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

I've had a h/o server for as long as I've been WFH. I've been having creeping thoughts about the current server's health/mtbf due to the fact that the hardware (with the exception of SSDs) is nearing the 14 year mark. I assembled this box in 2010. It originally had Server 2K8 r2, then 2013, and now 2016.

This server is a file server, web server, sql server, mail server, print server and is currently hosting one of the company websites, over a dozen company web applications, and half-a-dozen customer web applications. Even with all of those roles, it still seems blazing fast and doesn't seem to break a sweat.

Your story reminded me of a night probably 7 years ago that I was awakened in the middle of the night by a strange noise...an ominous repeating pattern coming from my office, across the hall from the bedroom. That was the sound of a 6y/o Seagate spinner crashing. Long story short, I lost a bit of data, but was able to recover within a few days. It was a learning experience for sure.

I have been thinking of replacing it with a laptop and repurposing the UPS. Smile | :)
