WHS Server

So over christmas I decided to build a truly dedicated server for my home (cause I just wasn’t feeling like a big enough nerd, ya know?) and finally decided on Windows Home Server over one of the Linux Distros. The decision primarily came down to the fact that I figured it would require alot less of my time, and would be pretty easy to administer.


So shortly after I get my server up and running, I find this gem. It turns out that their is a bug in Windows Server destroys any file that isn’t copied from windows explorer. No iTunes, No Bittorrent Client, no backups for Time Machine

Oddly enough this bug has persisted since November of last year. It appears the WHS Team is having a tough time teaching WHS to behave.

So, just a fair warning to any poor sod that happens to wander across this site. Get yourself a Linux box, bitch and moan while you struggle to configure it, then never ever have to worry about it destroying files.
