CoveCube has released WhsDbDataDump 2.0, a utility that allows you to migrate the backup data from a Windows Home Server 2011 box.  Here is the announcement from their blog page:

Overview

This tool is designed to extract complete mountable disk images (VHD) from the Windows Home Server 2011 Client Computer Backups database of backups. It is self contained and has no external dependencies on the Windows Home Server 2011. It features a standalone backup database parser and a GPT / VHD disk writer.

The only requirement to run this tool is .NET 4.0.

You can use this tool for data recovery or backup extraction / migration.

This tool is free for personal and business use.

Instructions

Download: WhsDbDataDump-2_0_0_7-BETA.zip (SHA1: 02f044950fb2ff6849f8e44e32bbb4b9116305a2)

  • Extract the single EXE from the ZIP file.
  • Place the EXE in the same folder as the Client Computer Backups database.
  • Run the EXE on the command line like this:
    WhsDbDataDump /vhddump
  • You will be presented with a menu of available backups. Select the backup image that you would like to extract.
  • A standard VHD file will be written of that backed up drive. You can mount the VHD in Windows Vista or newer using Disk Management.

You can run WhsDbDataDump on a command line without any options to get help on all the command line options.

Notes

Read Only
  • This tool does not write to the backup database.
GPT VHDs
  • This tool will always write GPT based VHDs. These disks don’t have a bootable MBR and you will not be able to boot from these images.

Go ahead and check out this tool if you are looking for something to help you mount and extract VHD files from a WHS2011 backup.

2- Cusomters wanted iSCSI functionality for non-English WHS-2011, WSS-e, and SBS-2011e operating systems

Below is a table showing the prices and the differences between each version:

Jim from electrongoo tells me that they have released an updated version of their add-in Integrity Checker.

integrity checker

Integrity Checker is now at version 1.50. The change log includes:

- Updates for Server 2012 Essentials and “Windows Server Logo” certification

– Fixed issue where files located within very long paths wouldn’t be scanned

– Code tuning and performance improvements

The last item, an installed signer, was added explicitly due to feedback from Connected Digital World.Com readers posting comments and the developer wanted to expressly thank our readers for calling that to their attention.

Integrity Checker is a useful utility to managing changed files on your homeserver. The developers say this:

In this digital age, data originates from many paths and numerous devices. With your server at the heart of your data, it’s necessary for you to guarantee integrity. Integrity Checker runs on your Windows Server; quietly, efficiently, and automatically watching for new data. As data is detected, Integrity Checker automatically generates hash-stamps to guarantee the integrity of your data.
Integrity Checker supports Windows Home Server, Windows Home Server 2011, and Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials. See our FAQ and How To pages for details on how Integrity Checker can work for you.

Check it out!

Dave at the guys at the Home Server Show have released episode 190.

home_server_show_small_thumb_thumb

Here’s what Dave has to say about this weeks show:

It’s another Windows Home Server post-mortem but there are no tears; only celebration. Well, maybe not that happy but we are looking more in depth at Windows Server 2012 Essentials. The more it’s torn apart the more comfortable it gets. We talk about domains, workgroups, Storage Spaces, RAID, SSD, and TechNet. The one question we have however, is this a product for the home or not? Listen in and find out.
