What is Windows Home Server?
Your life has gone digital - it is time to simplify your life so you can easily access your files, photos, videos, and music from any PC or TV in your home, or even while away from home. Windows Home Server was designed for households and home-based businesses that have more than one personal computer.

Back up and restore files and PCs
Windows Home Server completes an image-based back up of every home computer every day, so you can restore a single file or an entire PC.
Windows Home Server helps keep your family's important files safe by automatically making an image-based daily backup of every computer on your network. Your files and folders are duplicated across multiple hard drives, so even if one hard drive fails, you can still recover all your data. With Windows Home Server's data recovery capabilities, you can bring back individual files or folders for a home computer. You can even rescue a PC that's had an unfortunate accident or hard drive failure because Windows Home Server makes a copy of the entire contents of your home computer hard drive. Your computers stay healthy with home network health monitoring. You can see the exact condition of the computers in your home and make sure anti-virus and other protection software is up-to-date. 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.
Access your data anywhere
You and your family can now access the home network-at home, in the office, or even on the road.
Windows Home Server enables you to easily and more securely access your files and personal computers from inside and outside of your home. Using a personalized website address you can download and upload files to the shared folders on your home server. With Windows Home Server, 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. Now the whole family can enjoy a common music collection, with Windows Home Server as the media hub. And with an Xbox 360 or other supported digital media receiver, listen to a shared music collection, watch a photo slideshow, or catch up on recorded TV shows and movies on your television.
Store and share digital files
Organize your digital media in a central location, making it easier to share photos, music, videos, and more.
With Windows Home Server as your media server, store all your photos, movies, and more in a central location that can be accessed from any computer on your home network. And Windows Home Server uses a familiar interface that integrates with all your family's home PCs, making it even easier to find digital media. With Windows Home Server as your media hub, everyone in your family can create and access shared folders of photo albums, music, and movies from any computer in your home network. You can also access music and other entertainment content through your Xbox 360 or digital media receiver. Learn more about media server sharing.
