windows7_bloglogoIf you have multiple PCs with increasingly large amounts of digital photography, music, video, and documents, then protecting, organizing, and connecting this digital media can be a challenging task. Help with managing your digital dilemmas has arrived. Windows Home Server does more than Network Attached Storage (NAS) – take a look.

  • Media Server: Digi tal memories and media stored and organized in a central location
  • Backup Software: Home computers backed up daily, automatically
  • Data Recovery: Simple restore of lost files or even entire hard drive content.
  • Document Management: Complete access to files from both inside and outside the home
  • Remote Access: A secure and personalized website address for sharing photos and home videos
  • Add-ins: Easily add storage space and new software capabilities

Power Pack 3 adds the following new features:

  • Backup/Restore of computers running Windows 7 - Windows Home Server can automatically archive recorded TV by moving your recordings from a Windows Media Center computer to your home server in the format of your choice. This enables playback in the correct format for your home computers and/or portable devices.  You can configure your computer running Windows 7 to wake up at a scheduled backup time and then go back to sleep after the backup finishes.
  • Windows 7 Libraries integration - When you install the Windows Home Server Connector and log on a computer running Windows 7, you can access the Windows Home Server shared folders from the Windows 7 libraries.
  • Enhancements for Windows Media Center - Windows Home Server can automatically archive recorded TV by moving your recordings from a Windows Media Center computer to your home server in the format of your choice. This enables playback in the correct format for your home computers and/or portable devices.
  • Better support for netbook computers – looking for details on this.

Power Pack 3 will enable the most optimal experience for Windows 7 users on a Windows Home Server network.

  • tech guys cant come up with an answerabout.

    Autodata 2007 wont run in 7.Perhaps they need better staff.

  • Absolutely love my Windows Home Server.  I'd agree with the folks who say that WHS is the best product that Microsoft has launched.

    HP's Mediasmart servers complete the package...the best hardware implementation of WHS.
