OK, it looks like one of the hard drives was in the process of failing. After the latest power cycle, one of the drive lights doesn't come on at all and under Server Storage it's showing the drive as Missing.
I'm guessing I'll have to replace the drive, but it seems strange that it says "Missing" and not "Failed" or something like that.
1) I've tried reseating the drive in its current bay with no luck. Should I try moving the drive to another bay? I do have one other bay open, and I gues sit could be a problem with power to the bay instead of the drive (unlikely, I know). I wasn't sure if it would cause more problems to move a drive from one bay to another.
2) If I need to replace the drive, I assume the "Server Recovery" disk can help me recover whatever was there. Do I need to replace the drive with one of the same size, or can I replace it with a larger drive?
Thanks to all in advance,

I am getting an error when trying to back up my laptop to my WHS. It had been running backups with no problems, but after not having backed up the laptop for two weeks, I am now getting errors.
The backup starts fine and runs through 8% complete - determining files & clusters changed, etc. However, right after that I get the following error message:
Backup Status: (8% complete)
The backup failed because of a problem accessing a file on Windows Home Server. The event log on the server contains more details.
The event log on the server is not much help - there are two application errors around the time of the backup fail:
Event ID: 1004
Reporting queued error: failting application whsbackup.exe, version 6.0.2423.0, faulting module whsbackup.exe, version 6.0.2423.0, fault address 0x00063604
Event ID: 1001
Fault bucket 1575745692.
When I log onto the server with RDP, it tells me that Windows Home Server Computer Backup encountered a problem and needed to close, and lets me send the error report to Microsoft, for whatever good that does. I did capture the files it was sending in case there is any useful information in there.
I've tried restarting and power cycling the server, but I'm still getting the same errors.
I'll continue to try things but will appreciate any help I can get from the community.

I am having the same backup issue. All drives seem to be healthy though. Did you get yours to back up? If so how?
