Catastrophic Restore



My workstation had a catastrophic crash and lost the hard drive. Our server core was on the machine. There are no backups for the machine so I will need to reinstall everything on it. I would like to move the server core to one of our servers instead of installing it back on the workstation. Any ideas?

If there is no backup of the crashed machine and if PRTG stored its data locally on it, I guess there is only a fresh start on a new host machine possible. In case there is any data left, you could try to restore the data.

If that is not possible, you can simply start fresh by installing the latest version which you can download here.
