I have staged a Windows 2003 Enterprise 64-bit system running SQL 2005 Standard 64-Bit. My question is if Red Gate is running in 64-bit or 32-bit compatibility mode.

When I look at task manager during a backup I see the SQBCoreService.exe *32, this would suggest that it is running in 32-bit mode correct?

If this is correct is there a way to run SQL Backup in 64-bit mode? I'm just trying to verify I have everything setup correctly.

    The SQL Backup Agent service (SQBCoreService.exe) is a 32-bit executable file. There is no 64-bit version. Your setup is correct.
