We had a ready NAS NV+ v2 on which we had  various data plus our old PST files  which has crashed. I can restore the old data & smaller PST files to a Mybook live Duo that we have as a temporary measure but when I go to restore the larger PST files I get the error
A file or directory was written in a format that is specific to NTFS running on Microsoft Windows 2000 or later, and can only be restored to an NTFS volume that is running on Microsoft Windows 2000 or later.

is there any way round this???

Had a look the fix is for a 64bit platform. Our Backupexec server is 32bit.

Update: I can restore the PST files to a server that has some space & then copy them over to the MYBOOK LIVE DUO. WHich is a great work around but means double working the restore which can take ages because of the 400Gb of data involved

It's a solution...

By the way a nice tool for copying
Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Are you running into the 2G file size limit on FAT32 format drives?

That is, are you trying to restore PST files larger than 2G to a FAT32 formatted drive?
