Filer is used in German as a short form for file server.
Sometimes it is used as a name for backup software that puts the emphasize more on archiving for retrieval, not so much on a 1:1 backup.

Windows Powered is a proper name of MS and as such remains untranslated, it often is put within " ", see http://www.zdnet.de/news/artikel/2000/01/11018-ac.html
