As you probably already know, Microsoft maintains a number of community forums divided into categories. The work I do is mostly related to File and Storage, which is one of those categories.
You can find the File and Storage forum at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/winserverfiles. You are encouraged to post your questions there and the answers you get might come from Microsoft, from Microsoft MVP,s or from other members of the community.
The team working with the forums also maintains an FAQ for each category. For instance, the FAQ for File and Storage right now includes:
