Windows Home Server Data Corruption Bug Fix

When certain programs are used to edit or transfer files that are stored on a Windows Home Server-based system with more than one hard drive, the files may corrupt sometimes. According to the Microsoft team, this issue may occur when one of the following programs is used to edit, transfer, and save files to the home server:
  • Windows Vista Photo Gallery
  • Windows Live Photo Gallery
  • Microsoft Office OneNote 2007
  • Microsoft Office OneNote 2003
  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007
  • Microsoft Money 2007
  • SyncToy 2.0 Beta
  • Intuit QuickBooks
  • uTorrent


There is a bug that has been detected in the initial release of Windows Home Server which manages file transfer and balancing across multiple hard drives. In some cases, depending on the application use patterns, timing, and the workload that is placed on the Windows Home Server-based computer, some files can be corrupted.


To fix this problem, install the Windows Home Server Power Pack 1 update. Here is the download file from the Microsoft Download Center:
