Update for Windows Home Server with Power Pack 1 released January 27, 2009

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
This update improves the capability of Windows Home Server to repair abnormalities that are detected in home computer backups.
More information
Windows Home Server regularly checks the home computer backups for abnormalities. If any abnormalities are found, you receive the following message:
To troubleshoot and repair backup database problems, click Repair. This should repair problems that cause the backup service to stop running.
To resolve the issue, in the Home Server Console, click the Settings tab, click Backup in the left pane, and then click Repair in the lower right.

Before this update is installed, some users may experience symptoms, such as the Windows Home Server Console may stop responding, or network connections are lost when you try to run a repair operation. These issues are more likely to occur if the home computer backups contain a hard disk that has more than 150 GB of used space. This happens because the server may need more memory to process the backups than what is available. This update uses the available memory more efficiently in order to complete the task successfully.
