Windows Home Server: files may become corrupted

When you use certain programs to edit files on a home computer that uses Windows Home Server, the files may become corrupted when you save them to the home server. Several people have reported issues after they have used the following programs to save files to their home servers:
• Windows Vista Photo Gallery
• Windows Live Photo Gallery
• Microsoft Office OneNote 2007
• Microsoft Office OneNote 2003
• Microsoft Office Outlook 2007
• Microsoft Money 2007
• SyncToy 2.0 Beta
Additionally, there have been customer reports of issues with Torrent applications, with Intuit Quicken, and with QuickBooks program files. Our support team is currently trying to reproduce these issues in our labs.

No matter how smart your geniuses are, they can (and will) create a system to complex for themselves to understand without: Design, documentation, testing.

Time for the Bill Gates school of code and go to take a permanent recess.

(Not that Microsoft is the exclusive vendor of half baked software, just the preeminent one.)
