Microsoft issues warning
Microsoft is warning Windows Home Server users not to edit files stored on their backup systems with Vista Photo Gallery, OneNote Outlook,Quicken and QuickBooks.
In a support document Microsoft warns that certain programs would become corrupted if saved on Windows Home Server. The document said that until an update for Windows Home Server is available, Microsoft recommends that users do not use the programs that are listed to save or to edit program-specific files.
The problem has been caused by a glitch within Windows Home Server's shared folders. Redmond has reproduced the bug and would post any new information to the document tagged as KB946676. The company says that it is working fulltime through the holidays to fix the problem.
