Microsoft has detailed its plans to release a public beta of its Windows Home Server Power Pack.
The update will include a fix for the data corruption issues that have plagued the OS since its release.
In a message to potential testers the company said:
"Due to the nature of the shared folder data corruption bug (KB #946676) a broad beta test program with sufficient time for feedback is required. The time line for a final release will depend on this feedback and testing, in order to deliver a fix of the highest quality. To meet our goals for the beta test we need the number of beta testers who are actively using and testing the Power Pack 1 beta to ramp up very quickly"
The company is asking for anyone currently using Home Server to sign up to the beta to ensure the data corruption issue is fixed.
