Home Server News at CES

 

As Terry Walsh mentioned in today’s [TMCS], Microsoft have announced Windows Home Server Power Pack 1, this is an update for Home Server that will delivered automatically over Windows Update. Features include:

  • The Windows Home Server Connector will be able to be installed on home computers running Windows Vista x64 editions.
  • Windows Home Server Data Backup updated to enable you to select what gets backed up on each of the servers hard drive and a way to backup the home server database
  • Updated Remote Access functions with more granularity on the permissions and folders views for the remote folders eg a Photo View with thumbnails for images
  • Backup database repair wizard
  • Wake this computer for Backup

Looks like a good roll up of updates, more on the home server blog and I have a interview with the Home Server team this week to find out more
