We have teamed up with our friends at Tranquil PC to give away some two year subscriptions to their HomeServerSync add-in for Windows Home Server. This is the first of a number of giveaways.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be giving away a total of 10 two year subscriptions to HomeServerSync, each worth a whopping £278 each, which means we are giving away £2780 just for you, our UWHS readers.
HomeServerSync has ten top features, and here are the first two:
1. Off site Backup
You can set and forget HomeServerSync to monitor and backup selected folders on your Home Server to our very secure data centre. Real time or scheduled backups ensure your latest files are always compressed, encrypted then sent to the data centre for long term storage. A generous 100GB is provided with optional extensions available.
2. Offsite Bulk Upload
Getting your files to an offsite backup server is easy, but if you have 100GBs of files to transfer, the process can take quite some time. The optional Bulk Upload service delivers a simple solution – you backup to a USB HDD (the files are encrypted and compressed), then the HDD is sent to HomeServerSync, where the files are ‘copied’ to your account. You can then incrementally upload new files via the internet.
Ok, you are probably asking yourselves, what do I have to do to win one of these fantastic prizes?
For giveaway number one, we are giving away TWO licences (one per person), and all you have to do is send us an email telling us what topic you would like to see covered in a Windows Home Server Code Name Vail book (and yes, I’m writing one, so make the suggestions interesting and you never know I may even include them in the book). It can be anything you like including something you would like to know how to do, the choice is yours.
So send your email to giveaways @ usingwhs.com (remembering to remove the spaces).
Giveaway number one will end on Sunday 29th August 2010 when we will reveal the first two winners, who will be drawn at random by my cats (those of you who know me will get that little in-joke!) and posted on the site sometime on Sunday. The competition is open to anyone, anywhere, and you can enter as many times as you like, as long as your entry is different each time!
Good luck and keep watching UWHS for more giveaways and surprises.
And a very big thank you to Tranquil PC for the licences!
UPDATE: Giveaway number one is now over (thank you for all the entries), so stay tuned to UWHS for giveaway number two in the next few days.
