    I cannot boot from my original drive and have gotten a replacement. My old drive is still mounted as /backup.

    Is it possible to transfer all of my users from the old drive to the new one? Like by transfering /home directory and such?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: I found this: http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=12921&highlight=drive+restore

    But are there any other files I would need?

    Presuming that that was the problem and you have physical access to the server. Most people don't. More often than not the problem is a physical problem with the drive.

    PC. The bootsector ;) was overwritten of the second intsalled ;) OS.
