Operating System
Microsoft Windows Home Server
The Windows Home Server operating system backup engine stores data at the cluster level. Clusters are
typically 4 kilobytes (KB) in size. The backup database records include clusters and hashes of these
clusters (a hash is a number that uniquely identifies a cluster based on its contents). The database also
contains information on the structure of a hard disk volume (NTFS information).
During the backup process, a cluster from one computer that is identical to a cluster from a different
computer is sent to the server exactly once and stored exactly once. Because Windows Home Server
backs up multiple computers (space) every day (time) to a single database, it in essence supports "single
instancing of computer backups across space and time."
When the cluster size is different among volumes, no data is shared between the volumes in the backup
database. By default, every newly created NTFS volume gets a cluster size of 4 KB. A few volumes that
started out as FAT and were converted to NTFS have a cluster size of 512 KB. The only way to get any
other cluster size is to format the volume yourself and explicitly request a different size.
NOTE: You can maximize the efficiency of the Data Vault backup database by ensuring that all of the
hard drives on your computers are formatted with NTFS and with a cluster size of 4 KB.
The backup database is a collection of files that can be broken into three categories:
Global files - Files that track the history of all computer backups and all of the other files in the
backup database.
Cluster files - Files that store the actual cluster data from the computers. These are usually in
4096 byte increments. These files grow to 4 GB in size before a new file is created. These files are
stored as Data.XXXX.Z.dat, where XXXX=cluster size in bytes, and Z=0,1,2,…
Computer specific files - A boot record and data for each hard drive volume that gets backed up
from each computer.
Microsoft Windows Home Windows Home Server Drive Extender
Server Drive Extender
Windows® Home Server Drive Extender enables you to use internal and external hard drives for
additional storage. In addition, you can enable Folder Duplication for specific shared folders.
Maintaining two copies of a shared folder on separate hard drives helps protect against the failure of a
single hard drive.
Features and Functionality
The core features of Windows Home Server Drive Extender are:
Predefined Shared Folders:
Folders Your device is preconfigured with shared folders named Photos,
Music, Videos, Public, and Software. From the Data Vault Windows Home Server Console you
can specify user permissions for these folders and create new shared folders. You can easily move
files and folders from your local computers into the shared folders by using a drag-and-drop
Easy to add more storage:
storage From the Data Vault Windows Home Server Console, you can add a
new hard drive by following a simple wizard. The amount of storage available to your shared
folders and local computer backups increases proportionally. The hard drives you add can be
either internal or external (for example, USB 2.0 or FireWire).
Shared Folder duplication:
duplication If you have two or more hard drives, the Windows Home Server

Software and Hardware
operating system helps protect against hard drive failures by ensuring that files stored in shared
folders are automatically duplicated to multiple hard drives.
Windows Home Server Drive Extender offers the following benefits for storage solutions:
Allows the seamless addition of more hard drives:
drives As you add more hard drives, they are treated
as a single large pool of available storage space. You no longer need to deal with drive letters
(such as E:, F:, and G: ) because you can add more hard drives.
Works with internal and external hard drives:
drives You can add internal or external (for example, USB
2.0 or FireWire) hard to increase the available storage.
Shared Folder Duplication:
Duplication Duplicating designated shared folders provides protection against
hard-drive failure by storing important data on separate hard drives. Duplication is configurable
for every shared folder-so a shared folder can have multiple copies with each copy stored on a
separate hard drive.
Makes hard drives and their content easy to move:
move It is easy to remove outdated hard drives.
You can store the content on other hard drives in the system and remove old or small hard drives.
Windows Home Server Drive Extender is different than and more powerful than a redundant array of
independent disks (RAID) in several ways:
You can use any hard drive, any time. You are not restricted to adding more hard drives of the
same type and size. When you want to grow your storage, you can buy and add any hard drive
you like.
Internal and external hard drives can be used to grow your storage.
Drive removal is easy. You can remove older, smaller hard drives and add new, larger hard drives
to upgrade your storage capacity.
Microsoft Restore
The HP Data Vault provides bare metal backup and restore of up to 10 PC's and Mac's.
To restore individual items from a previous backup stored on the HP Data Vault, a virtual volume driver
is loaded on the computer. This allows a previous image of a hard drive to be mounted, as if it were a
read-only volume, across the network. This driver opens a connection to the Data Vault, and it receives
the relevant clusters from the device to build a virtual view into what a given hard drive looked like on a
given day. The read-only volume is displayed in Windows Explorer where a user can drag the files and
folders that they want to restore to the Windows Desktop of the computer they are using.
A computer that is behind your firewall and has the Windows Home Server Connector software installed
can create a backup without further authorization or authentication. However, restoring individual files
and folders and restoring computers using the Computer Restore CD requires the Windows Home Server
