Microsoft rarely admits mistakes, so when they do, odds are pretty good it’s a good-sized one. Hence, when they admitted that there is a bug in their Windows Home Server software, corrupting data storage that it touches, what they were really saying is that there’s a huge bug in their Windows Home Server software.

See, Home Server is a software platform that other companies such as Iomega and HP use to help regulate storage devices. Now, while Home Server is under an ‘extreme load,’ it’s having a tendency to corrupt files in those storage devices. Uh-oh, piscettio’s, indeed.’

No word on a fix as yet, but MS is advising against making any hardcore changes to Home Server with the following programs:

  • Windows Vista Photo Gallery
  • Windows Live Photo Gallery
  • OneNote 2003
  • OneNote 2007
  • Outlook 2007
  • Microsoft Money 2007
  • SyncToy 2.0 Beta
