Backup for Workgroups Supports Windows 64-Bit Editions

Scottsdale, Arizona USA -- November 2, 2005 -- Lockstep Systems, Inc. today announced that its Backup for Workgroups disk-based backup solution can backup computers running 64-bit versions of the Windows operating system. Supported editions include Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter Server 2003).

Along with the ability to backup computers running 64-bit versions of Windows, the Backup for Workgroups Data Repository Manager can operate on a computer running either a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows.

"As companies begin deploying 64-bit Windows with their existing 32-bit Windows computers, Backup for Workgroups can grow right with them," said Karl Forster, president of Lockstep Systems, Inc. "Our goal with Backup for Workgroups is to provide small companies and departments in larger organizations with the benefits of high-end backup solutions at a value-leading price point."

"Backup for Workgroups has been an excellent solution for SansCarta's data repository backup needs, particularly for our Windows 2003 64-bit server operating systems," said Erick J. Wicklund Sr., the director of research and development at SansCarta, LLC, a secure document storage company dedicated to the safety and accuracy of online storage solutions. "We tried multiple backup software solutions before discovering Lockstep's solution and continually ran into problems with systems crashing, difficult set-ups, and lack of support for 64-bit operating systems. We have now been running Backup for Workgroups for three weeks with absolutely no problems. This software is easy to install and works quickly. Their staff has also been great to work with and very helpful in ensuring security and reliability for the software. I would recommend this software to anyone."
