I have hooked the HDDs up to other computers. IT shows the HDD and shows that there is data on them ( 1.1 TB free of 1.82 TB) something like that but when i open the HDD it show NO FILES!

Might be a silly question, but have you enabled "Show hidden files and folders" and "Show protected operating system files" in the folder view options?

Not sure exactly how WHS Drive Extender works but it may modified the file attributes to hidden or something along those lines. Please ignore if irrelevant/incorrect.
At long last...

OMG that was simple!!
I am pulling files now!

I was on the phone talking to various tech support reps and accomplished nothing.

OMG i feel SO DUMB!!!

ALSO I have a copy of WHS 2007. BUT when i put the OS back on the server why shouldn't I just put WIN7 on it?

Ive used WHS for a while and find that most thing it can do win 7 can also do.

SO WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WHS???

The original WHS has drive Extender, which allows you to pool hard drives. You can add a 1 tb HDD and instantly have another 1tb of avaialble space, have an old 250 gb, add that also to get another 250 gb, no need to set up RAID or have similar hdd size and types. It will duplicate the data over several hdd if needed for redundancy.

It also allows simple back up and restore features of multiple computers, and reduces duplication (so if you have 2 identical files on different computers, it will only make 1 copy, but still know it is on both).

It also does many other things, but those were the big ones for me.

i also enjoy that it's fairly easy to use. im kind of excited to see what whs 2011 will bring around especially with drive bender seemingly able to replicate the drive extender

WHS v1 is a cut-down version of Server 2003 SBS. They do not have domain support iirc.

Regarding the data, have you tried reading this? Edit: I see you found it in the hidden folders.

WHS can have automated, centralized backup for your computers and server. Centralized file and document sharing. Video streaming to PCs and Xbox. There is also a limit on the number of computers that connect to Windows 7. Windows Server OS have higher limits depending upon the license.

There was only 2 versions of WHS, WHS now called V1 and WHS 2011. There is no new version released in 2007, it is WHSv1 probably with Power Pack 2 or 3 slip streamed in. As to what to use. WHS has more advantages over windows 7 for a home server. centralizes backup of pcs, moving record tv shows automatically to the home server, drive extender. WHS 2011 does not include drive extender, you have to purchase a 3rd party app. Plus you have to pay for it too. I'm sticking with WHSv1 until 2011 is moore mature.
