Will Win8 back up to WHS v1?

Point simple. If I upgrade an exsiting Vista PC to Win8, will my client back up to my WHS v1 ?

Has anyone tested this?

Conversly, will Win8 restore from V1?

Thanks

Yes, yes, done, done. :D

 

This is very good news. I did not have the same luck trying to backup win8 installed to vhd. I did this on my win7 laptop for testing and even though I was booting from the win8 vhd, the backups would not work. The connector installed, but the backups would never get past 0%.

So I did a clean install of Win8 and now the backup gets to 54% and says "The backup failed because of an error reading data from your hard drive. To resolve this problem, try running "chkdsk /f /r" on each of your hard drives and restart your computer." Any ideas?

Run "chkdsk /f /r". I have had that problem show up in Windows 7 also. Not sure why.
