Iím still using my HP MediaSmart Server EX487 that I bought in 2009 to back up all my computers and notebooks. It was one of the best products HP ever made. It wakes up all your computers on a specified time, and backs up an image of each one, so you can recover the entire HD if need be. In addition, you can open individual images of the hard drive to access specific files. Itís based on Windows Home Server 2003, so works perfectly and seamlessly on a Windows network environment. After I upgraded everything to Windows 10, once in a while I have issues with the old connector software, but itís still usable, just that sometimes one of the computers loses connection with the server.
Unfortunately, HP stopped producing and supporting this line of products a long time ago and it seems that just now a company (Thecus) is coming with something based on Windows Server again. So, I may get another year of my HP EX487 and then I may consider this product:
Windows Storage Server
If anyone has used the product above, or know of any other Windows Home Server product, please let me know.
