A few hours ago there was a thunderstorm, so decided to switch off all my pcs which are already protected by APC UPS.

Later turn the pcs back on and my file server greets me with corrupted OS message! So decide to format and reinstall but get WinXP unable to format or access disk - could be damaged message!

Gonna have to spend a few days taking apart the file server to test each hard drive using the diagnostic tools

4x 80GB WD 800JB
2x 200GB WD 2000JB
