OEM Express Error 1128 Path too long on Restore

Recommended Posts

It is now May, 2010. I'm using OEM (Western Digital) Express, which seems to be the latest free version available to me. I am restoring a backup of files from an XP machine using a Win 7 machine, but I don't think that's the problem. Restore logs the 1128 error for many files, and skips some files for which it doesn't report the error.


I see this problem has been reported many times for many years using many versions of Retrospect with various OS's. It's not an OS problem. It's an application bug.


This is a critical bug, because backup software that won't restore is useless. By the way, I have 15 years professional work experience in computer programming. If you care about your company's reputation, I suggest you get this corrected, and into the field for all your users right away. Sincerely.
