Hi Chris,

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.

Best Regards

Matt Brown
