Boot the Windows Image, connect via KVM and try to repair your Windows Installation with the Windows Setup utilities.

Perhaps the permanent swap file is corrupt, or a few files are broken.
Also check if the partition where Windows is located has still enough free space.
I alreay have seen services, e.g. exchange, stopping because the partition was full.

Exactly what I intend to do. :P It's a 49.50 (Euro) charge for 24 hours for something that might not even work at all. MrA won't be happy to see a new bill right before our 1200 one is due. :roflol:

Daily incremental backups are made onto our second disk. Several tasks are executed approximately an hour apart. The final task was executed before the server rebooted. The hardware is 100% OK.

KVM was a no go. The software is dead and we're going to need to plan out our options.

I'm calling in the big guns and I'll see what Fleppie can do. He'll hopefully have a trick or two up his sleeve. He can also recover the hardware and make backups on site at the data centre.

I don't expect TMX/MX to return this week. I once again apologise for any inconvenience. This was completely and utterly unexpected.

Greetz,
+1 to that. I couldn't have said it better.
Fastforza, if you need anything from my end, don't hesitate to let me know.
PM'ing me here is probably the fastest.

Take your time and enjoy the holidays with family/friends.
MX/TMX can/will wait.

Really annoying for you to have these kinds of troubles. But most of us can live well without tmx/MX for quite some time.
Just take your time! We will not go and kill you, if it takes two weeks or even more. We know, that you'll always try to do your best. We are very thankful for that :thx: :thx: :thx:
A nice person is a better person!
