I can't say that I share your experience because 4.3 works for me as 4.2
did, but I cannot RESTORE from storage sets which are > 2GB.

Actually it does create the storage set and it compares ok during script
execution, but later I cannot browse the contents, I cannot rebuild the
directory, and I cannot restore from it.  Whenever I attempt any
operation on the Storage Set I get an error dialog;

     Couldn't open catalog Qube - Archive error -23 (unknown)

The Operations Log would indicate that all went well ...

As Storage Sets > 2Gb is a new feature  I decided to actually go through
the exercise of checking the snapshot, the contents, and the ability to
RESTORE ... glad I did!

Just to be sure that I hadn't done something wrong or that there was a
problem with my system I performed the same exercise on two volumes < 2GB
... they worked fine.

My backup computer is an 8500, 233MHz 604e, 128MB RAM, 20GB IDE HD (via
IDE PCI card), builtin DDS2, running MacOS 9.0.4.  The "server" is a
Gateway Microserver (i.e Linux on MIPS, running Netatalk).

I was so looking forward to having storage sets > 2GB on the MacOS
version :-(

Cheers,  Malcolm
