I am sure you will be pleased to know, that this is now fixed and
working beautifully :-)
I downloaded your latest merge tree and recompiled on both server and
client, pulled a backup file from the store for the previous day and
once downloaded tried a restore to SQL server and it worked fine.
Once again thank for all your help on and off list, BoxBackup is a
fantastic product - keep up the good work. If I can do anything to
help, testing etc please let me know.
