Hello all! I wanted to double check with you guys on whether or not I should do this or not. I am currently using Windows Vista Ultimate as my home server. The home server currently is nothing more than a file server for all my media. I experience constant "hangs" when trying to access media from my laptop and main PC (also both Windows Vista Ultimate). All are on gigabit lan (DLINK DIR-655) and move things back and forth fast...but at times if I try to open a song or something from another machine...it hangs and generally takes 20-30 seconds before it plays the song. Something is screwy with Vista for sure! The current setup I have is as follows: * CoolerMaster Elite 330 Case * Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H 780G motherboard * AMD X2 AM2 BE 2400 2.3GHZ * 3GB Kingston ValueRam * 1 Samsung 80gb SATA (Operating System) * 2X Western Digital 500gb SATA (media is stored on these) Now, I would like to move to either Windows Server 2003 (which we all use at work....right) or Windows Server 2008 (something I am just getting into). I would prefer to install Server 2008 so I can familiarize myself with the OS, but is it a bit overkill for a "File Server"? I would like to setup an FTP server on this server so all my family can share all that they want and possibly access all of my media too. What do you guys suggest I do?
