Home Server Status - Mini

Recommended Posts

JerryW

For those who care,

 

I have been putting together a new, freeware version, of HSS for use with WS2012E, Home Server Status Mini.

 

For those running Windows 8, you will get toast notifications that depict current backup status (e.g.: started, completed, failed, etc). Hovering over the tray icon will show the last status of your backup (e.g.: completed, failed, etc) as well as % of current backup progress, a small right-click context menu will allow for easy access to launchpad, backup properties, dashboard client, and shared folders.

 

For those running Windows 7, you will get the same as above but in the form of balloon notifications. 

 

That is it. A very small, excluding the .net framework, c# application that does nothing more than what I stated. It will not offer all of the features of the previous HSS but will tell you what you needed to know the most, without having to use MS's launchpad.

 

I am refraining from adding anything further, as other features are simply not needed and begins to bloat the application.

 

Thank you,

 

JerryW

That sounds fantastic Jerry. I really love small, special purpose utilities like this.

Just came back here, wanted to see if there's an update for WSE 3.09 and I'm sad to read that development has stopped. With 3.09 the same problem like others that the program is freezing and has to be ended by task manager.

So I would really like Home Server Status Mini, but where to download?

Thank you!

You don't download it yet and 3.09 will never be fixed. I decided to rewrite the entire application. I am thinking of changing the name to Windows Server Status instead. I have not completed my development yet and when I do, I will announce it. Though, I must say, I have not gotten that much of a response. So, I am curious if I may be wasting my time. Something I will have to think about. Something that led me to discontinue HSS to begin with, not to mention Microsoft.

Thank you. I understood it like it already had been published.

No response from my side either, but at least I bought your software....

Well, I am pretty much ready to release it but I have my two boys running through the software with a fine-tooth-comb. Believe it or not, if there is a bug, they usually find it before anyone else does. So, I told them, break it!! Once it has been ran for about a week with no issues, I will be more than happy to release it.

I'm having a problem anyway now: each time I log on to Windows, Windows Server Status stopps responding and gets closed. So, in Startup it doesn't work. I can start it manually, without problem.
