Subject: RE: [GENBOX] Backup doesn't work-- (confirmed)

I was able to get the incorrect "Insufficient disk space" error message on
I have traced it to the new GetFreeVolumeSpace() routine, which was added in
3.6.3 so that Genbox can detect when the target volume is not able to hold
the complete backup. Apparently, Windows 98 is not returning the correct
value for free space.
I'll get it corrected for the next release. In the mean time, you can use
WinZip, PkZip, or simply copy your files to the backup directory.
Thanks for reporting the problem.
