    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";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  
    • "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"  
    "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
