One of my friend said his Wise Studio server had a disk crash which has the Wise share as well as SQL Database. What he should have lost? He is new to Wise Package Studio also. How to rebuild the Wise Server? He has the packages on a different server which is good.

I haven't used Wise myself in a couple years now, but I'd say the answer to your question depends on the specific setup scenario your friend chose. You could have a look here at the getting started guide for wise. off the top of my head I'd say what might be lost are the software repositories and possible conflict databases.

This is easy. All he needs to do is restore from his last backup. He had backups, right? No?!? Oh dear...it's a hard lesson to learn this wayAnyone who runs any sort of computer with data on it needs to take backups. If you don't, frankly, you deserve everything you get. Is that harsh? I don't believe so. Folks are too used to hardware being always available these days but this stuff does break down and you need to be prepared.

Oh and don't forget to randomly test that you can restore from your backups, too. That is a lesson which you really don't want to learn the hard way.

Thanks guys for your ideas. This will be hard learned lesson for my friend. As he has all the packages on a different server with all package development files, I have to help him here. I am thinking to reimport all MSIs and project files to make a new database. Though it is not exact, but may contain most of the package history. What do you guys say?

This seems like a good time to start again by importing the packages, yes.
