HP ProLiant MicroServer USB 3.0 – Video Edition

After the installation of Windows Home Server 2011 RTM on my HP ProLiant MicroServer I found myself wanting to add a USB 3.0 card to increase my off-site backup speeds. If you have a ProLiant MicroServer, or are thinking of buying one, check out our 17 minute video that completely tears it apart!

This video will be of great help if you want to add or change memory, add an optical drive or install an expansion card. Thank you to Andrew Edney and John “Diehard” Zajdler for the motivation to get this video posted.

My HP ProLiant MicroServer is running Windows Home Server 2011 with one 250GB system drive and two 3TB drives in a Mirror configuration.

My two 3TB drives settled in very nicely with the built-in Mirror with Windows Home Server 2011.

There is also an eSATA connector on the back for expansion.

These little servers cost just over $300 and are a great value for anyone looking for new home for their Windows Home Server 2011.

The top and front of the HP ProLiant MicroServer come off easily without tools so adding a 5.25” device is easy and can be done in less than a minute!
