The Windows Home Server continues to eat up files, but it appears that this product's very hungry bug isn't going to turn into a butterfly and fly away anytime soon.  (Source: Microsoft)
The very hungry Windows Home Server continues to whet its appetite on unfortunate users files as the scope of the problem grows and grows

Sorry to disappoint you but I have nothing to do with MS. I am just a very happy user of WHS.
I have not had any corruption problems, or problems backing up wireless PC's. In fact my WHS has performed perfectly. I have used it on more than one occasion to recover from some accidents (self made) on client PC's (3 Vista PC's).
I am a software developer, myself and I suppose I sympathize more than perhaps I should, but I feel that the WHS team will fix this bug and if it's done in June then that's fine as long as it's done right.
When I got my EX475 in November I did not put all of my jpg's or music library on the WHS without ensuring that I had other backup means for all "precious" files. This was even before this bug was uncovered. This just seemed like common sense to me.
I do sympathize with folks who lost their files, but I feel that MS gave valid workarounds and "not to do"'s to avoid the bug.
