Yes, that message occurs on 8.4, but not on 8.3 (running Windows 7 x64)

It's because he implemented choice.com on 8.4, before 8.4 the tool depended on windows own choice.

When you re-download v8.4 it will contain a new choice.exe which is 64bits compatible. No version bump, so just a new v8.4 ZIP .

EDIT: It appears its still the 32bits choice. When I use the 64bits choice we get problems on 32bits systems. Will think of a way to switch between these two depending on OS.

When you re-download v8.4 it will use the Windows bundled choice command, but when it cant be found it will use the 32bits version of choice bundled with this tool (since Windows 2000 and XP are 32bits and lack the choice command). No version bump, so just a new v8.4 ZIP .

Try this:

@ECHO off

if %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% == x86 (
goto :x86
) else (
goto :x64
)

:x86
//Do whatever
goto :eof

:x64
//Do whatever
goto :eof


Also from command line SET PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE tells you.

A dry-run restore is a restore that actually doesnt write to the partition on the device, but it does perform all other actions. This is a good way to test a backup before actually restoring it.

MD5 value can be different when you have taken multiple backups, since TA has some logging inside which changes frequently, this is normal.

I'm sorry but for now the tool is only supported on Windows installations that make use of a Germanic language.
You can install such a Windows installation with VMWare or VirtualBox next to your current installation.
