    Microsoft today reported progress on the corruption issue with the Windows Home Server-based computers that have more than one hard drive. First reported in December 2007, an update to the KB article was posted today that provides more information regarding symptoms, cause, status and guidance. You can read the KB here. The Windows Home Server team plans to release beta test versions of a fix over the next few months. The final version of the patch is currently estimated for June 2008, although that date could change as testing progresses.

    Yep, read about this several days ago. Apparently the bug is in the Drive Extender technology WHS uses, which basically means its a bug in a low level part of the OS. So, it's no surprise it'll take them a few months to make/test a patch.

    In the meantime, I hope they release Power Pack 1. Would be nice to finally be able to back up my x64 machine.
