Running 7.5 on Vista 64 bit


Recommended Posts

I know that running retrospect on 64 bit vista is not supported, but does anyone know if it will actually work? Does anyone know what issues I might have? I have a laptop that I downgraded from vista ultimate 64 bit to XP home 32 bit just because of retrospect. I'm currently running 7.0, but would be willing to upgrade if I knew I had a chance of making it work.

I am running Retrospect 7.5 on my Vista 64 Ultimate. I had no idea it was not supported (are you sure it isn't?).


You cannot use it to restore the Operating system with Vista x64 (published limitation).


I currently have a problem with copying open (locked) files, which seems to be related to the Volume Shadow copy Service (VSS) and may in fact be a windows problem. Otherwise it runs just fine.


Hope this helps.
