Suggestion for WHS 2011 client backup integrity check
I was happy to see that the WHSDbDataDump tool has been updated to version 2.0 for WHS 2011. Version 1 of this tool saved my butt when the client backup database on my WHS V1 server got corrupted. Using the tooI, I was able to recover most of the backup I needed even though WHS wouldn't mount it.
There was also a client backup database checker program available for WHS V1 called WhsDBCheck 1.0. After my client backup database got corrupted the first time, I used this tool to regularly check the integrity of the database by running it from a batch file. My suggestion is to update this program to version 2 for WHS 2011. This would be a valuable update even if it has to be run from a command line like version 1. If it could be integrated as a task into DrivePool or Scanner, that would be a feature to brag about.
Thanks for listening.
