Load Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 on a system, and you'll notice something strange: There's no boot record or BCD folder. Look at other Win7/R2 systems, and you may notice something even stranger: There's only one file on the hard disk. What's going on here? Windows 7 now includes the native support for booting from VHD files (that's how a one-file system boots) as well as a new default disk structure, direct-to-disk ISO burning, and more. Whether you're going to Windows 7 sometime soon or five years from now, you'll want to be prepared for what Win 7 brings to storage -- and who better to prepare you than veteran Windows explainer Mark Minasi? Join Mark for this quick look at Win 7/R2 storage and save yourself having to read a small mountain of white papers!
