Windows Home Server Client Backup Notifier

Windows Home Server MVP Sam Wood has just released a new add-in that emails you about your backups. It will let you know when your backups have completed, failed or not run at all.

Example output:



Last Good Backup: 31/07/2010 2:58:01 p.m.

Last Backup Status: Complete

Current Health Status: Normal




Last Good Backup: 1/08/2010 4:31:20 a.m.

Last Backup Status: Complete

Current Health Status: Normal




Last Good Backup: 1/08/2010 6:11:19 a.m.

Last Backup Status: Complete

Current Health Status: Normal

Backup is running

I haven’t had chance to test this yet but I will try and get a review done sometime this week.

You can find out more here.

    Good job!
    I could use a WHS app that would let you use the WHS like DropBox. Now THAT would be huge!
    I know I can set up DropBox on a WHS, but that’s not what I’m looking for. I’d like to bypass the expense and space limitation of DropBox and go directly to my server, allowing collaboration shares and all the sync benefits, but to do it directly on my own server. Has anyone heard of such an app?
    HomeServerSync from Tranquil sounds like it would have been a good solution, app-wise, but damn if they did not make it so you have to buy a subscription to their online storage too! I don’t want or need their limited and way-over-priced online storage. I have my own, thanks. I just need an app to let me do that…
    Any suggestions? Anyone?

    I personally don’t know of an app that can do this, but if anyone knows of one please let me know and I will get a review done on it and post on the site.
