Getting a blue house back

So when you move from WHS v1 to WHS 2011 or Windows Storage Server Essentials 2008 r2 (say that three times fast) you lose your little green/grey/blue house in the corner of your desktop telling you when things are running as they should.  Well no more.

With that add in (worth EVERY penny of it’s price) I get my little blue house back so I can monitor the backups and the network backups without the annoying launchpad.


In the words of the guys from the Prep and Landing Christmas video “This is sooooo tinsel!”
