Building a Windows 8 Home Server - Step by Step is We Got Served's essential guide to Microsoft's "re-imagined" Windows operating system... with a twist! Whether you're new to the world of home servers, thinking about upgrading from Windows Home Server or swapping your Network Attached Storage device for a real computer, this 360 page eBook will help you build, install and configure Windows 8 for home server use.
Written by Microsoft Windows Home Server MVP and We Got Served Editor Terry Walsh, Building a Windows 8 Home Server - Step by Step walks you step by step through your Windows 8 home server setup, illustrated with hundreds of detailed, full-colour screenshots.
From selecting hardware components, building your own home server PC, through installation, set-up and usage, Building a Windows 8 Home Server - Step by Step brings to life the most relevant new features of Windows 8, helping you build your home network around a Windows 8 PC. Detailed walkthroughs include a deep dive into Microsoft's all-new Storage Spaces feature, (the successor to Windows Home Server Drive Extender), File History and data backup options, configuring user accounts, homegroups and shared folders, navigating the brand new (and more than a little quirky) Windows 8 Start Screen and Apps, configuring Remote Access and in-home/mobile media streaming and much more. Finally for Windows Home Server enthusiasts, there's a bonus chapter on converging Windows Home Server 2011 client backup and remote access with Windows 8 - bringing together the best of both worlds!
