Using Windows Home Server and HomeServerSync Final Giveaway Still Time to Enter


- Advertisement -

Over the last several weeks 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 final giveaway – 5, yes 5, two year subscriptions and you still have a few days left to enter.


The first two giveaways were a huge success and so it is time for the final one.

When this giveaway ends, we will have given away a total of 10 two year subscriptions to HomeServerSync, each worth a whopping £278 each, which means we gave away £2780 just for you, our UWHS readers.

If you are not sure what HomeServerSync is, you should check out our review – part one and part two.

HomeServerSync has ten top features, and here are the last five:

5.  VPN

Many of the HomeServerSync features are based on our own secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) system.  This service means that your PCs and Home Server can be ‘joined’ together in their own private and secure network.  This always and anywhere service releases the Home Server functions beyond your home or small office.

6.  Access your Home Server remotely

Ever needed to access your Home Server console, but where not locally connected?  Now you can access the Home Server Console and all features from anywhere in the world

7.  Backup your PCs via the internet

Although we do recommend that the first backup should be done locally, with HomeServerSync you can now backup your PCs where ever they are, ideal for remote family members or office workers.

8.  Open / restore Home Server backups

Have you ever needed to get access to an older backed up file from you Home Server, but you weren’t on the local network ?  With HomeServerSync you can get access to the PC backups, just as if you were locally connected.

9.  Access your Home Server shared folders and Home Server Desktop

With HomeServerSync, you can now continue to access your Home Server shared folders even from outside your local area network.  Now you can steam your music or share your pictures where ever you are.  If you are more advanced and need to open your Home Server desktop you can do that too, without technical issues (ie port forwarding).

10.  Web control and file access

With your HomeServerSync Offsite Backup account you can access all of your backed up files – and download / delete them.  You can set alerts to be emailed to you – see how much space you have used and much more.

Ok, you are probably asking yourselves, what do I have to do to win one of these fantastic prizes?

For this final giveaway, we are giving away another FIVE licences (one per person), and all you have to do is send us an email giving us a suggestion for the site, whether it is an article, a change to the look of the site, the logo, anything, or just send us a comment about what you want to see on the site – the choice again is yours. How easy is that?

So send your email to giveaways @ (remembering to remove the spaces).

This giveaway will end on Sunday 3rd October 2010 when we will reveal the final five 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 Monday. 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!

And for those who entered giveaway number one and two but didn’t win, I will be randomly entering you in the next few giveaways so you may just win!

And watch out for some other great giveaways coming up soon.
