bio Posted April 12, 2005 Report Share Posted April 12, 2005 Hi all, I was wondering if you guys could help me out with a small problem. Currently i'm helping out a friend that has a small company and he has a couple of MAC OS 9 & 10 Clients. Those clients are running the DAVE Client software (so it can connect to a windows XP machine). The Windows XP machine has NTFS formatted disks, and is running retrospect v6.5 to backup the files. (yeah i know, they choose XP to cut costs) Now the following issue arrives: The mac clients are saving their files onto the XP machine. The XP machine is writing the DATA fork and the Resource Fork correctly unto the NTFS disk. Question 1: Is it possible that the retrospect v6.5 software can backup the Data Form & the Resource Fork ? If yes, how can this be done ? We have tried in a simple test but if we a restore a file it looses the Resource Fork Question 2: They also have a Linksys NSLU2 with 2 * 160 GB Disks. If Mac clients write directly to those USB disks it also writes the Data & Resource Fork to thoses disks. So we can assume that those disk are formatted as NTFS in the NSLU2 Admin Panel. So is it possible to backup via retrospect on the XP machine, and run a backup job to copy files from the XP machine to those USB Disks (NSLU2) ? Thanks for the help, Richard Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
