It's odd. I'm not denying the failure rate, but we have three 360's in the house. One original from around Christmas of 2005, one from 2007, and one from last year. So far, not a hiccup. We don't...

Hmm. I have been backing up my Windows 7 computer to WHS since the public beta and now with RC. The image based backup works just fine and when I tested the restore, that worked too. It also...

So, the Groove functionality is still there, it's just renamed to SharePoint Workspace 2010? Does it require that a SharePoint Server be in place? I hope not, because I really like Groove.
