Default Windows Home Server Still Crippled By Corruption Issues

Two months have passed and the issue has not been resolved. Instead, Microsoft conceded that the scope of the problem is much bigger than initially estimated. Microsoft acknowledged numerous customer reports of corruption in the following programs, though it says it has thus far been unable to replicate them:

* Apple iTunes
* Zune Software
* Photoshop Elements
* WinAmp
* Microsoft Office Excel
* Mozilla Thunderbird
* Visual Dataflex

Reading the blogs from the various WHS team members (including the GM), you'd think no problem existed....

What's worse is that from discussions on the WHS Forum, it seems that to get a fully functional copy we'll have to buy a 'Version 2' of WHS.

I wonder what the hardware partners - HP etc, think of it all?

I think more because they designed hardware for software that doesn't do what it should.

No, I've got mine installed in a Dell SC430 with 1Tb WD & 500Gb Samsung drives.
Works well as a PC back-ups & re-builds box but it should be capable of so much more...
