Hi Simon,

OK, so it works on both platforms, Windows XP and Windows 2003?

You have the same bbackupd.conf for both? Can I just confirm that I 
understood you correctly, that with the old version of Boxi you saw
this problem on Windows 2003 but not on XP?

But which would you prefer, a GUI to configure Box Backup or a GUI to run 
your backups without Box Backup?

Cheers, Chris.
