Windows 7: Home Server 2008

Home Server 2008

Has anyone got Microsoft Home Server 2008 running and is Windows 7 able to delve into it?

I ordered 3 trial copies, and I wanted to know if I will be able to access my information on it. I will be putting all of my movies, pictures, and other such stuff on it.

I still have Vista in my quadboot if it becomes a problem.

I hope to be able to do this over the holidays. Gotta fix a heat issue in the machine I will be putting WHS 2K8 on.

I think it won't be an issue. If so then I'll just use Vista for those operations.

I have just installed Windows Home Server on my extra PC. Now I have to just upgrade the hard drives. However, it is not reading my Seven drive. It shows my Windows Vista Ultimate drive though. I also wish I could install OneCare on Seven. I like OneCare the best. I think I will just use my Home Server Connect on my Vista Install.
