I have a small HP microserver I use to backup the other computers in the house as well as providing some shared directories.


My WHS 2011 install is now proving buggy and I propose getting a copy of Windows Server 2016 Essentials and installing that.




1. I see cheap licences on Ebay, are they legit?


2. My needs are simple. The best feature of WHS 2011 is the ability to restore a PC / laptop if the harddrive dies. It has saved me several times. A bit worried the Windows Server 2016 Essentials may be too difficult to install / manage.
