Windows Home Server Beta 2 Screen Shots

View lots of screen shots of the upcoming Windows Home Server.


Windows Home Server is supposed to be released sometime at the end of 2007. This post shows you a few screen shots from Windows Home Server Beta 2 and gives you a few short descriptions of what it does.

What Is Windows Home Server?

Windows Home Server is built on Windows Server 2003 SP2 technology and is meant to do the following in a small home network:

  • Backup each computer.
  • Share files between all computers and make them searchable.
  • Allow remote access to all computers from anywhere.
  • Access shared folders from anywhere.

It will be sold as an appliance to most people, although it will also be sold as an installable OS for people who want to install it on their own hardware.


The majority of people will never see this part because they will buy Windows Home Server already installed on a special appliance.
