Looks like a good priced package, although isn't it possible to get better value if you built one yourself?

Actually, that chassis is an In-Win design. It's one of their ITX designs from the BM series. You can probably find it sold separately if you're interested.

Most likely, but you have to remember that you are getting centralized support through cyberpower and not having the headache/know how of building it is worth it to many.

Cool I have always liked those ITX designs.

A "complete daily backup" of all household computers on a single 500GB hard drive? Looking at the configurator, there's an option for a 1 TB drive, but no option for additional drives. In a household with 3 or 4 computers I think it'd run out space awfully fast, but it'd certainly make a nifty media server.

How does it accomplish "automatic daily backups" of connected computers? Is that functionality built into Windows Home Server? Tell it what to back up and it just goes and grabs it at a specified time of day type of thing?

Jeremy,

Actually the 500gb drive is more then enough to back up all your computers. We have been using WHS for over a year at a number of sites and it actually works. Once of the few MS products I would recommend.

The software eliminates file redundancy in the backups so that windows is only backed up once. Only the files that are different on the computers are backed up. Then it does incremental backups. We have as many as 10 computers on 1 server and it only takes about 160gb or so.

If you have 2 drives the software will keep a copy of your files on the second drive in case of a drive failure. So the 1tb is less of an issue then having the 2 drives to backup the server.

As for backing up you tell it when you want it to do backups. We have it set for overnight. Any computer that is left on during the backup time frame is backed up. You can also do a manual backup any time you want. After the first backup it only takes a few minutes for subsequent backups!

The other benefits of this software are too many to go into here. Hope this helps.
