Ramblings of a Home Server User

The million dollar question….

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 3:50 pm

Should Microsoft release Power Pack 1 now, without the data corruption bug fix included? Microsoft is interested in hearing your feedback on this question, so if you want your voice to be heard head on over to the forums and join the discussion.

From Todd Headrick (Product Planner – Windows Home Server):

We have always planned on holding the release of Power Pack 1 until we had the data corruption issue resolved.   The Power Pack 1 code was “put on the shelf” in early January, as the team switched focus to working on the data corruption issue.  There is some new functionality in Power Pack 1 like the ability to backup your Shared Folders to an external hard drive attached to your home server that some home server users have asked us to ship.  There also is some new remote access functionality (photo thumbnails, multi-file uploads), and a collection of fixes.

Knowing that the home server team has a current estimate of June, 2008 for the fix for the data corruption issue, do people believe that the team should “dust off” the Power Pack 1 code and release prior to a fix for the data corruption issue?

  1. I think the Home Server team needs to continue working the data corruption issue but release the Power Pack 1 ASAP. Then the data corruption issues can come down as a hotfix.
