|Does FileBack PC work with Windows Vista?|
FileBack PC 4.0 has been tested with Windows Vista and some product updates
have been made in releases posted after September 2006. All known issues
with Vista have been addressed as of February 2007 with one exception.
The "make a shadow copy" feature (used to backup open files) of the
Enterprise and Administrator editions of FileBack PC will not function under
Windows Vista. The reason for this is that FileBack PC uses the NTBackup
component of Windows to perform backups of open files, and with Vista, Microsoft
has changed this component to the point where it will no longer backup single
files on demand as it has in the past, and thus no longer will provide open file
backup for FileBack PC.
We are looking into other possible solutions but at this time no suitable
alternatives are available. As a workaround for some situations, you may
utilize the feature to close an application before running a backup. This
is found on the Pre-Backup category page of the Advanced Backup Job Editor.
