Support for old Operating Systems

Microsoft has ceased to support for the following OS:

  • Windows 2000 (July 2010)
  • Windows XP (April 2014)

This means that Microsoft does not develop these operating systems any further. Also, no bugs in the operating systems are fixed which might occur while running more modern applications. I only have very limited possibilities to correct problems with my programs that occur when used with these legacy Windows versions.

System requirements


  • Processor: 800 MHz or more
  • Graphics card with at least 800 x 600 pixels resolution at 65536 colors (16 bit)
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Z-DATdump requires a correctly installed tape drive which is also displayed in the Device Manager.

Z-DATdump writes data to tapes with the SCSI PASS-THROUGH INTERFACE according to the ASPI guidelines/SPTI standard. The program thus works with all common tape drives (IDE, SCSI, USB, S-ATA and SAS) from 2000 or newer, and some older ones as well.
You can test whether our software runs flawlessly on your system and can use your existing hardware by testing the freeware versions of our software prior to buying the full versions.
