Default Windows Home Server Corrupts Files

Microsoft Corp. has warned Windows Home Server users not to edit files stored on their backup systems with several of its programs, including Vista Photo Gallery and Office's OneNote and Outlook, as well as files generated by popular finance software such as Quicken and QuickBooks.

MS haven't helped themselves by providing limited information in the kb article but this 'panic' really is being fuelled by misinformation and the usual MS bashing.

I've no drama's with my WHS installation (so far) and don't expect I will now that I've read more about the problem.

Sorry, I didn't intend to single out /. but I was commenting on the general hysteria found on forums where this news has been posted.

True but if it is/was part of your normal nightly WHS back-up then there is no problem it seems.
