From the Start Menu open up Windows Home Server Console
This is an odd place for the settings but in the Beta they are located in the upper left side of the console. Click on the gear icons.
The first screen contains the General settings. Time, Region, and turning on or off Windows Updates.
Under Computers & Backup you select the backup times for the computers on your home network. Backup management and cleanup are also handled in this area.
