We have several different Windows Servers (2003, 2008) in our department. We pretty much control all of the servers. My boss says that the servers need to be restarted at least once a week but I disagree with him. A friend of mine told me that since we restart them so much, that's why our hard drive fails sometimes. So my question to all you experts is this: How often should we restart our servers? Thanks!
