    Is it unsafe to assume that this will also work in my XPx64?

  3. Crash2975 says:

    Nick, that is correct. The connector is for Vistax64 only due to differences between the OS (as reported by Terry Walsh on http://www.wegotserved.co.uk/)

    Gotcha: well, maybe I can use the forthcoming SyncToy to back up to the WHS occasionally…

    (The only reason I use x64 is that it is required to run my SATA RAID server because of the 2tb limit of Windows…didn’t have WHS a year ago…)

  5. Hi Nick Eaton,
    You do release that WHS does not have that 2TB limit?

    Boy, what is MS’s position on XP X64? I am running it and love it. I hope MS is not going to leave us XP X64 users in the dust.
    When will there be a connector for XP X64? I have been using it on my XP boxes and love it, but w/o XP X64 support, I am not willing to make the change from my Ghost backup solution.



  7. Hi dave campbell,
    Unfortunately there will not be a x64 connector for XP. It will only be available for Vista.
