FMS very hard crash.

So the server was acting funny again and proceeded to shut down and restart.

 

Got the OSX white screen. Finally got it restarted using the boot utility.

 

All hardware checks out. The big issue is my external backup and progressive backup USB drives are toast. Not even recognizable in any other computer. I can't even format them if I wanted because the disk utility can't see them. It's like I plugged in nothing at all.

 

The back up on the SSD is still there so I will go about trying to recover that.

 

What in The world would cause this bad of a crash? I am very upset that two external backups are dead. I can deal with a crash but not wiped out backups.
