DiRT Backup 1.1 Build 10 Problem

Unanswered Question

We installed the latest version of DiRT Backup on our Unity servers running 4.2(1). Exchange 2003 is off-box.

After upgrading to the latest version, we started getting 3 error messages when try to run DiRT backup. These messages also prevent it from running automatically. The error messages are attached. Would someone be able shed some light on this?

Thank you.

hmmm - it should only be making the mailstore type check for Ex2007 if the local Unity install is 5.0(1) or later - the column didn't exist in 4.x - I'll have to fire up my 4.21 box here and check it real quick.

In the DiRT output log (i.e. when you do a backup after clicking through those messages) does it identify your system as 4.2(1) or another version?

I'm a dummy... when you're looking for version 5.0(1) or later it doesn't help when you actually check for version 0(5).1. oops.

I fixed the version check routine for the eX2007 check and posted updated versions of both the backup and restore setups with it:


let me know if this works better for you.

sorry to run you around like that - thanks for the early report, though.
