I removed the crashed drive, installed the cloned drive from April and everything booted. Reinstalled the crashed drive and was able to look at all the files, just not boot from it. Moved all my files and databases over and everything is back to normal. Wasted a couple hours but so much better than wasting days.
Copied all the files for my email client and everything is as it was. Nothing lost.
just had contact ( 2300ISH UTC) with Robert, NH7WN, on RS44 for those shooting for HI.
