Over time, my home made Home Server has been slowly dying with the backup service rarely working and recently one of the HDDs have been display with errors and potential failure. So rather than trying to repair it, I went with my alternative… buy a new one.
I was hoping that my current server would hold out until the new version of Windows Home Server was released (hopefully later this year) but I was worried that mine would die in the meantime. So through work I bought a new HP MediaServer Home Server.
I will be posting pics up of my process of transiting to the new server but it will be a slow old process moving near 500GB of videos and pictures.
