Microsoft has revealed that it will release the first major upgrade to Windows Home Server within the next five months.

According to the firm, Power Pack 1 is designed to improve the software's performance and reliability, and will be delivered to users via the Windows Update service.

Microsoft demonstrated the new upgrade at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2008, which is currently taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Power Pack 1 gives users more control over Windows Home Server's remote access features, includes support for Vista x64 editions, and allows data on the server to be backed up to external storage devices," revealed Todd Headrick, marketing director for Windows Home Server.

On the backup front, users will be able to designate a new hard drive as a backup device. Moreover, a new database repair wizard has been included to detect and repair common backup errors.

In November of last year, Microsoft released a small update for Home Server that let users download a trusted SSL certificate to simplify the remote access set-up for personalised domains at Homeserver.com.
