A small and old Windows 2003 server, just crashed; from the backup only the .bak files are available. A new server will be built, however, as the database is very small (20MB) and the Windows server was also used for printing and file sharing (5 users), I was wondering what platform would be worth it to start from (server platform and SQL server version). Maybe to make things easier it could be wise to use a simple Windows 7/8 machine with SQL server installed. BTW, clients are running Access 2003 (ADODB/adp).

Your thoughts?
