Forum Spotlight: Automate the Windows Home Server Backup

Power Pack 1 for Windows Home Server brought us the ability to back up the Shared Folders to a designed backup hard drive, however this is a process that the user must perform manually every time they want to take a backup. Forum member and moderator Cougar has found a way to automate the steps needed to perform the backup using a free, open-source utility called AutoHotKey.

Check out the Wiki article to learn how to do this yourself, and post any comments or questions in the original forum topic. Thanks Cougar!
