Silly Question....XP?

Silly question but I can assume there is no way this works with XP, nor has anyone figured out a workaround?

I know the product states WIN7 and above but I was just curious for some of my legacy pc's i have running around the shop.

XP is not supported as you found and I have not seen a way to "force" it to work. The only option I could see is making it a virtual machine and using Veeam Backup Free.

Thanks, I knew it was silly but thought I'd throw it out there.

I never see a question as silly because either someone else has the same question who hasn't asked, or it may spark an idea in another member who comes up with a solution to benefit everyone!

Virtualized the XP machine and use Veeam B&R to back it up. If serious - you can use a free backup utility to motivate users to upgrade the OS. Well, at least you can try to do it :)
