This PC, which is connected to the Home Server using client software, gets backed up automatically every night. Each of these entries represents a full backup image. I can restore an individual file (or files) from a given day's backup set or restore a complete image in the event of a hard disk crash, malware attack, or other crisis. A bootable restore CD connects a PC to the server in that case.
This customized control center was designed by HP developers to put an easier front end on server access for end users. If you build your own system using the OEM release of Windows Home Server, you won't see it.
The tools in this administrative control center exist to shelter users from the intimidating console. Note the iTunes library integration, which is supplied via an add-in and is not included in the OEM Home Server package.
