  • You may do either. If you choose to add it to the storage pool, you will be able to access it from other PCs on your network through the Windows Home Server shares. If you decide to manage the drive yourself, you can allocate it a drive letter, create shares, etc. just as with any other Windows-based PC, but it won't participate in any of the features of Windows Home Server.

    Soon Power Pack 1 will be release; at that point you will also be able to use an external drive as a backup drive, to store backups of your server shares and backup database.
