BartPE and GetDataBack for NTFS

I was running into an issue while building a BartPE image with "GetDataBack For NTFS" where the Bart CD would work fine until I attempted to launch GetDataBack then nothing would happen. I have tried different versions of the Windows build source (2k3, xp, different service packs) and different versions of the GetDataBack plugin to no avail, it just will not launch. Oddly enough this appears to be caused by the build machine which in my case is running Windows 7. It appears that if you build your ISO on a Windows 7 machine even though you are using XP build source the plugin will not work. I copied my PeBuilder directory to an XP machine that had BartPE installed and it works fine.

Cisco IPSec 64bit VPN

Cisco finally released a version of the Cisco VPN Client that works on 64bit machines and is IPSec capable.

From their site:
"The new release VPN Client 5.0.07 supports the Windows Vista on both x86 (32-bit) and x64. Refer to the Release Notes for more information."

I just installed it on my Windows 7 x64 laptop and it works just fine.
