When I open a backup I get a dialog box asking me to restart my computer. Why do I get that?

Tom Ziegmann part of the Windows Home Server Team has just posted this over on the Microsoft WHS forums:

You will get a message saying that “Windows has installed new devices, in order for them to be fully functional you need to restart your computer.” You get this message because when a backup is opened it loads a disk driver that allows you to open the backup as a separate disk. If you restart your computer you will have to start the process of opening the backup all over again. Do not restart your computer, the backup will open and you should not have any issues.
