While Microlite does not claim that these older products will work past
the year 2000, we have provided a patch for this issue.
It is available on our ftp site,
ftp://ftp.microlite.com/pub/fixes/ctar/. This is
only a temporary measure, as the programs will stop functioning again
September 7, 2001.
A permanent patch for the date math problem causing older versions of BackupEDGE and CTAR to stop working on 04-19-2001 has also been devised.
This patch requires a form to be faxed or mailed to Microlite Corporation.
To get the form, Browse to http://www.microlite.com
"Important Notice for all users of Microlite Products shipped prior to September 1, 1995 (UPDATED)"
Then click on:
"For the permanent patch, "CLICK HERE".
This will provide access to the forms, which are downloadable in multiple formats. The permanent patch will patch old copies whether or not the temporary patch has been applied.
EVEN WITH THESE PATCHES APPLIED, THESE PROGRAMS MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY
AFTER THE YEAR 2000.
The correct solution is to UPGRADE TO THE LATEST VERSION OF
BackupEDGE provided your operating system is still currently supported.
Not only will it provide you with a tested, Y2K-compliant backup software
package, but you will be able to enjoy the many benefits of additional
years of product development.
