Re: COMP Backup Software Recommendations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have also used Backup Exec ver 5.x. Unfortunately, it uses a file called
"qbwin.dll" which is the same name as a file used by QuickBooks. I have
found (as well as a couple of my colleagues) that there is a conflict which
makes scheduling backup jobs and opening Quickbooks impossible.

I spoke with Seagate yesterday and they have a program out called "Backup
Exec for Win 95, ver 2.0". This program, unlike BE ver 5.x, is compiled in
32 bit code and the file qbwin.dll has been renamed. At their (Seagate's)
website, there is no mention of "Backup Exec for Win95" but there is one
called "Backup Exec for NT" with a retail list price of $149.00.

Thanks for the info,
