Restore files, folders, and entire computers easily
That video of your baby's first steps isn't gone forever. Windows Home Server can bring back individual files or folders for any computer in your home, using snapshots of previous versions of important files or folders that might have been accidentally deleted or modified. You can even rescue a PC that's had an unfortunate accident, effectively turning back the clock and fully restoring the old system.

Secure your stuff with Automatic Backups
Imagine the peace of mind that comes from automatic daily backups. Windows Home Server helps keep your family's important files safe, backing up every computer in your home, every day. Your files and folders are automatically duplicated across multiple hard drives, so even if one fails, you can still recover what's important.

Keep your PCs running in tip-top shape
Your family's PCs stay healthy with home network health monitoring. You can see the exact condition of the computers in your home and make sure everyone's software and virus definitions are up-to-date.

Protect your files from prying eyes
Windows Home Server sits behind your firewall and has strong password controls to help secure your home network. You decide who sees what, so you can share what you want and keep the rest private.

Stream photos, music, and videos
Keep in tune with what your kids are listening to. Now the whole family can enjoy each other's music, from your wife's jazz standbys to your daughter's new favorite pop song. Use your Xbox 360 or other supported digital media receiver to listen to your family's shared music collection, watch a photo slideshow, or catch up on recorded TV shows and movies.

Keep it together
Stop wondering where last year's Christmas pictures ended up and put your family photos where you can all see them. Get and stay organized with a single, easy-to-access location for all your important files.

Share photos, music, and videos
Turn your home into a digital democracy. With Windows Home Server, everyone in your family can create and access shared folders of photos, music, and movies from any PC in your network. You can also share music through your Xbox 360 or digital music receiver.

Add more space whenever you need it
Now you don't have to choose between your photo albums and music albums. You'll have all the space you need—simply connect a new hard drive to your Windows Home Server. Of course, all your family's videos, photos, and music are still safely stored together.

Do more with your home server now and in the future
Imagine controlling your home security system through Windows Home Server. Designed with new products and services like this in mind, Windows Home Server will keep growing and getting better. Software and hardware developers are already working on innovative add-ins, such as home webcams, family information management software, home automation, and other innovations that work with your home server.

Easily share from anywhere
Use your free Internet address to share digital memories and more with anyone you want. All they'll need is Web access, a browser, and a log-in password from you. And don't worry about Mom getting a hold of the wrong pictures; you decide who gets to see what with a simple drag and drop.

Connect to your home server from virtually anywhere
With Windows Home Server, home is just a click away. You can connect remotely to the computers in your home and access all your files, even run applications, just as if you were sitting in front of your home computer.

Get to files easily
Stop the spread of digital clutter. When you store all your files together, you can get to them as quickly and easily as if they were on your PC's hard drive. Windows Home Server uses a familiar interface that integrates with all your home computers.


Windows Home Server automatically backs up your home computers. Computers and individual files can be easily restored. Additionally, computer health monitoring allows you to see the health of computers running Windows Vista® in your home. You will know if your anti-virus programs and other system software are up-to-date.

Every member of the family can access what they need on the home server from another computer in the house. You can also share information with faraway friends and family through a personalized Web address, or access your own files from a computer with a Web browser when you’re away from home.

Your family photos, videos and music, and other important documents are together in one central place. Folders can be created by subject or topic, so your family can stay organized and up-to-date.

You can simply connect a new hard drive to Windows Home Server as your storage needs increase. Also, application developers can create innovative Windows Home Server Add-Ins to expand the functionality of your home server. For example, Add-ins can be created for home automation, home webcams, media sharing, and home security solutions, Windows Home Server will be part of the family today—and in the future.

Home Computer Backup and Restore
Windows Home Server will automatically back up your home computers to the home server and allow you to easily restore the entire computer or an individual file or folder to a previous point in time. The Windows Home Server Backup solution uses an innovative method to back up only the data that has not already been backed up before. Even if you have several copies of the same data on different computers, the data is backed up only once on your home server and your home server keeps track of what data was stored on each home computer on each day. This makes it very efficient in terms of the time it takes for backups to complete and also the amount of space that is used on your home server.

Automated Daily Backup of your Home Computers
Computer backups are automatically configured when you install the Windows Home Server Connector software on your computers. Backup is performed on a daily basis for every configured computer.

Restore an Entire Home Computer
Restoring a home computer to a previous point in time is easy. If you want to restore your computer to a previous point in time, you boot the home computer from the Home Computer Restore CD. The computer will connect to your home server and provide a simple wizard for restoring a single hard drive or multiple hard drives from a backup of that computer that is stored on your home server.

Restore Individual Files and Folders
You can also restore individual files or folders by selecting a home computer and a specific backup of that computer from the Windows Home Server Console application. A Windows Explorer window is displayed with the files and folders that were backed up for that computer on that day. You can easily drag and drop individual files or entire folders from this Windows Explorer window and store them on your Windows Desktop or another location on your home computer.
