    I had an interesting discussion with HP regarding their Home Server product. I have the EX475 with (2) 500 Gb drives. HP support is under the impression that when I do a backup of my computers it stores the backup on the system drive ONLY. This can’t be true, can it? I was going to add (2) more 500 Gb drives because I am backing up 8 computers but, gee, if their statement is correct….. why add drives?

    Well, you are both wrong (partially). If you install WHS Add-on “Disk Management”, it will become very clear to you that:

    1. Yes, client database backup files are not replicated (bit bummer!)
    2. The client database backup files are backed up on the secondary drive , and not the system one. (This relates to EX475 system with 2 drives).
