    Yes.  You boot from the Recovery CD and you can restore your computer to your most recent backup.

    Yes.  Up to 10 different client PCs can be connected to (and backed up to) your server.

    thanks guys for ur input.
    You can get more info about backup and restore functionality by reading the Technical Brief for Home Computer Backup and Restore.
