One of my users asked me if it would be a good idea to close his old (small) drive to his new (big) drive. I said no. He did it anyway.

The problem he's having now is that the Windows Search Service and Windows Update Services aren't working. If you attempt to start Windows Search you get this error

"The Windows Search service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs"

I've run the gamut on the online solutions. I've even noticed that there are two sets of entries in the Registry for the Windows Search section, but I've been warned not to delete either...


If you try to run Windows Update, the system just hangs.


Any thoughts?

What clone software did your "user" use? How was it cloned...what type of clone was made? Was the new "big" drive clean and pristine or were there OS remnants?

My user can't remember what tool he used (/facepalm). The new drive was clean...fresh out of the box.

I have access to a LogiCube and he has the old drive on a shelf, so I can probably re-clone him and simply restore this past month's data from a backup. Though, I strongly suspect a rebuild is in his future.
