One thought on “Microsoft Releases Home Server Power Pack 1

  1. Updated my server last night (along with all of the clients). I had stopped relying on the file server functionality back when the data corruption bug was first announced, so even though it is nice to have fixed it wasn’t a show stopper for me. The really nice thing is that I can backup my Vista x64 machine. There have been a couple times I’ve needed to use the WHS to restore a machine and it worked great. That in itself sold me on this product. Now if we could just get that media center functionality built-in, THAT would be a killer app.
