    Using 2008 server as my server at home. Got it through dreamspark for free.

    I made the mistake of not partioning the 1tb HD on setup and it will only let me shrink the drive to 500gigs so I figure since I want to load the raid drivers on it I'll reinstall and do it all at once.

    That aside. I have a couple of questions. I'm going to do backups of the computers in the house using the server backup utility on the OS. Does anyone know of any other 'services' that would be helpful? I've been reading the threads here and the OS backup utilities sound like a good idea. Never used it but I might look into doing this.

    Ohh.. also is windows remote login come on XP/Vista? I thought the remote login service was part of the OS but I know there are many types out there like Logmein. I'd like to use the intranet type of remote service. Anyone want to point me in the right direction?

    Ohh.. NOTE: 2008 server is VERY nice. Fast as hell. :cool: No problems recognizing/sharing or anything so far. Just FYI.

    edit: Also: A while ago there was a company providing free space for backup. Something like 5 gigs. Anyone know who this was?>
