Windows Home Server is getting ready for Windows 7. The Windows Home Server team has announced the Windows Home Server Power Pack 3 Beta which provides backup and restore of computers running Windows 7, Windows 7 Libraries integration, enhancements for Windows Media Center, and better support for netbook computers. With the Power Pack 3, Windows Home Server can perform a full image-based backup of Windows 7-based computers, allowing for a complete computer recovery in the case of a hard drive failure, or restoration of a single file or folder in the event of accidental deletion or loss.

 

To download the Power Pack 3 Beta, you will need to sign up as a beta participant of the Windows Home Server program on Microsoft Connect. For details on all the Power Pack 3 Beta, check out the Windows Home Server Team Blog.

 

More to come,
