Who are we?

Tentacle Software is a software development company based in Auckland, New Zealand. We make cool stuff for Windows Home Server and other Microsoft platforms.

Our fearless leader is Sam Wood, a Windows Home Server MVP. Sam is an active blogger on topics related to Windows Home Server as a development platform, and has been known to be particularly evangelical about home servers and personal data protection. Seriously, don't ever tell him you don't back up your digital photos.

If you want to get in touch with us, you can send your text-based communications via the contact page or Twitter. We're happy to chat about any development opportunities you might have.

Privacy Policy

We ask for your email address when you sign up for an account in our store. This is only so that we can email you the license keys that you purchase, and to send you notifications when we release patches (you can disable notifications on the My Account page).

We won't ever sell or give away your contact details to a third-party.

Software Purchases and Refund Policy

Any prices listed on our web site are in U.S. Dollars, and we use PayPal for payment processing.

All our software is available with a trial license; just download and install the trial, and you'll have access to all the features and benefits of the software for 30 days. We encourage you to make use of the trial period to determine if the software is right for you.

We don't offer refunds for any software licenses purchased from our store. All licenses sales are final, and subject to the End User License Agreement that you accepted prior to downloading the software.

You can view any license keys you have purchased in the past on the My Account page.


We don't just build awesome Windows Home Server Add-Ins! Tentacle Software works with a group of like-minded developers and designers to build great solutions for businesses of all sizes. If you have a custom development opportunity, get in touch and we can talk about how Tentacle Software and our partners can help.
