I need your help, please.
Time ago, during usual maintenance (system management software) in a server (HP proLiant ML370 G6) I found some "strange" errors on some disks of the raid (5 + 1 spare).
Failed recovery reads and Hard Read Errors.
I phoned HP support and they told to send the ADU report. I did and then they told me to ugrade firmware and software using the appropiriate cd (downloaded form hp site).
I installed all the software (automatic procedure) then I sent a new ADU report.
Then my nightmare started.
They (HP) told me that harwdare is ok (though smart magement software still says I have the same errors).
They told me the error is not hardwrae but "logic".
They told me I have to delete everything, delete the array, everything, and restart from scratch.
I told them.... ok.. I can delete and redo the raid but THEN i need to restore the backup!
Can't miss the customer data!
About 100gb of exchange data and many gb of sql data. Not to mention the server is also a domain controller...
They told me I can't restore the backup using standard windows backup or macrium backup (I use both) because, doing this way, I would restore ALSO the logical errors as those software perform an "image" of the partitions.
Uselessly I told them that Macrium recognizes bad sectors and I don't have none evidenced!
I ran chkdsk /R/F/B and no errors and.... THE SERVERS WAS (and IS) running smoothly!!
No way... They keep telling me
"it SEEMS ok but soon it will be NOT! You're risking to loose all your data!
You have to reinstall everything and... then move your data from the backup."
I asked... but.. If I restore system state and exchange there is not a risk to restore also the error?
No reply. They tell me I HAVE do this. And... furter support has to be paid...

Please help me.
I don't trust in what they told me. Can't believe this "ipotetical" error can't be fixed without reinstalling everyting... and, rememebr, all is working fine!!

Thank you very much.
