    That is not a built-in function of WHS (it's supplied by the server manufacturer, which I believe in this case is HP).  You should contact the manufacturer for support.

  • I have had the same problem (only difference is that it ran once when first installed but only collected about 20% of my media files) and have not gotten any help from HP.  I suspects it is a problem getting the executable media collector program to run as a scheduled task (?)  I am on Windows 7 and all the published help covers Vista and XP.  If anyone can advise how to find the media collector/media aggregation program under Windows 7 and make it run as scheduled in the Home Server Console, I would appreciate that advice.
