HP Media Vault 2100

What is HP Media Vault 2100?

The HP Media Vault is a home printer and file server from Hewlett-Packard. One of the advantages of the system is that if the primary drive is lost (which includes some system software which works in conjunction with the firmware) the system can be restored onto a replacement SATA hard drive using HP's nasrecovery software.


During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 17 files and is usually about 6.13 MB (6,428,672 bytes). The installed file mediasmartupdate.dll is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
