Earlier tonight we posted about Tranquil’s HomeServerSync Add-In – now we take a closer look.
Here is the post from earlier: HomeServerSync Pricing Revealed and Beta Invite

So as I am on the beta I thought I would post about my experiences with it so far.
Installing the add-in is just the same as with any other Windows Home Server add-in.
When you have restarted the Windows Home Server Console you will see a new tab called Offsite Backup.
If you click on this it opens the HSS area.
The first thing you need to do is click on the Register button, then fill in all your details.
Then you click on the Settings button and fill in your details you just set up, then click the Sign In button.
You can also change the schedule settings here, and set a password if you want to use encryption.
ADDING FILES AND FOLDERS TO BE BACKED UP
You can add files to be backed up by clicking the Add File button and selecting your file.
And you can add folders to be backed up by clicking the Add Folders button and selecting your folder.
Just repeat this process for each item you want backed up.
If the HomeSync Service is not running, click on the Start Service button.
