    Default XP home woes

    Before reading all the docs I tried installing the windows client on a Windows XP Home box that already had cygwin installed.

    This resulted on two users being created in the system that are not managable by windows, along with cygwin being unusable.

    I deleted the cygwin install manually before realizing that the installer was also an uninstaller.

    I also noted that the windows client installer can't repair a failed install if the previous install script set file permissions

    Is there a way in cygwin or the windows client to remove the amandabackup and amandaroot users?

    Default Nevermind

    I ran the uninstaller one more time and it succeeded in removing the two users where it had failed in the past

    Great news. In case you need to remove it manually, please try

    net user amandabackup /DEL
    net user amandaroot /DEL

    Default Update

    RE-installed windows client...success
    had to set auth "bsdtcp" in dumptype for this system
    amcheck daily shows all OK
    With amdump daily, I get: planner: [disk c:, all estimate timed out]
    Is that a problem? or do I need to adjust the timeout somewhere?

    any particular directory to backup?
    For example, to backup C:\windows\system32 directory, then path would be "/cygdrive/c/windows"
