Does Windows Home Server backup Windows 7 boxes?

    I have an HP MediaSmart Home Server (ex487), running
    software version 2.5. I recently got a windows 7 box
    and do not know if the server will back it up properly.

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks in advance,

    If you are referring to Microsoft's Windows Home Server, then yes, it will.

    Yes, that is the OS the HP machine uses. Will it work for 64 bit
    Win 7 too?

    Thanks,

    Yes it will, and be sure you have all of the updates & SP's installed.
