    After reading the previous article about v12.5 being available for Windows Home Server I attempted to upgrade my WHS 2011 to v12.5. I had already received emails from Raxco explaining that a complete download of 12.5 was required as well as a new Activation Key. This upgrade was only for the standalone versions of PD12 Pro and PD12 Pro for Networks.

    Since i could not find anything on v12.5 for Windows Home Server I email tech support and they advised me that v12.5 for WHS did not exist. Now this post reflects SP3 (Build 310)which is again only for the “Pro” and “Pro for Networks” versions.

    Am I missing something or are you running the “Pro for Networks” version on a Home Server? There seems to be alot of improvements in v12.5 and since the v12 for WHS doesn’t even install as an add-on(no .wssx file) I’m thinking maybe running “Pro for Networks” would be a better option.
    Any information would be appreciated

      @Mikmock: you right, there are no 12.5 for WHS. Information given by Raxco support:
      Thank you for contacting support.

      I regret to inform you that PerfectDisk 12.5 was not released for Windows Home Server. Please continue using PefectDisk 12.0.290 for Windows Home Server machines.


      Per your email, you are inquiring about WHS upgrade. At this time, there is no upgrade for WHS. The upgrade was only for the client. However, if and when we release an upgrade you will be notified immediately.

      So, there are no PD 12.5 for WHS at all.
