      Windows Home Server is able to automatically "clone" the boot drive because it operates on clusters, not files. "Clone" in this case means maintain current copies of all in-use clusters, such that the disk can be restored to its state as of the last nightly backup (or any one of the last N backups), using a bootable CD included with WHS. The scheme is inherently space- and time-efficient, since it's only copying changed clusters. It also does not copy duplicate clusters, making it especially efficient in multi-PC backup situations.

      WHS has a number of other useful features (it's based on Windows Server 2003), but the backup system is a biggie for me.

      You can buy boxes with WHS pre-installed from HP, or just buy the software from Microsoft.

        dumb question #1 - is it an OS, or software that can be installed on top of vista?
