Thank you Windows Home Server

About a year ago I bought a 3TB “NAS” running Windows Home Server: Acer Aspire EasyStore H341.

After a 15 minute setup per machine in my household everything gets automated daily, full backups.

Two days ago my ssd crashed with “SMART status BAD – backup and replace drive”, unable to ignore/boot, windows 7 repair tools didn’t even recognize the drive…

Then:

- Drive to the next store with the ssd replacement i wanted: 15 minutes

- New SSD: 200€

- Booting from the Home Server recovery CD, selecting which partitions to recover: 10 minutes

- All ssd partitions restored: 30 minutes (Gbit lan, yay)

- Reboot, working system (only 6h changes lost, luckily I was mostly sorting my mails)

Windows Home Server makes even complete drive failures a non-event, I really love this fine piece of working, reliable soft- and hardware!
