    Microsoft expensive NAS (network attached storage) corrupts files. lol  
     
    "Microsoft has warned Windows Home Server users not to edit files stored on their backup systems"  
    http://www.computerworld.com.au/index.php/id;1766329704  
     
    Why pay $599 for a device that only has 500gb of hard disk space, 512mb of ram, a Sempron 1.8ghz processor, and fouls up file integrity? You can buy a simple and solid NAS with 500gb for only $100.  
     
    Here is the Microsoft NAS thats $599: HP EX470 MediaSmart Home Server  
    Here is the software, Windows Home Server, that is loaded on it: Microsoft Windows Home Server OEM

    Apparently the problem with Windows Home Server still exists and a fix for it is due June 2008  
    Microsoft Warns Home Server Users Not to Write to Server or Use Media Managers  
     
    WARNING DO NOT USE YOUR WINDOWS HOME SERVER FOR THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS  
    • "Use applications to directly edit or change files stored on Windows Home Server"  
    • "Use media management programs, such as Windows Media Player, to import files to the Windows Home Server"  
    • "Redirect applications to access files stored in the shared folders"  
     
    BUT WHAT TO DO  
    "Instead, users are instructed to move files to and from the server only by hand, using Windows Explorer or a command line tool. Promise of a fix was cautiously optimistic, but not exactly speedy."  
     
    So while we wait for Microsoft to release an update, HP releases a new Linux-based Smart NAS that works and is half the price, and can be easily attached as an accessory. And it gets really good reviews: HP Media Vault 2100 Linux Server Reviewed: One Kick-Ass Little Penguin
