EADR support for Windows 7, 8.1, 10

Brief description:

EADR support for Windows 7, 8,.1 10 is no longer part of the EADR support matrix. It was removed in Data Protector 10.x. This must be changed to support various scenarios where customers use the Windows client operating system on "industry PCs". There is usually the requirement to backup/restore not only file systems, but to create image backups for DR purposes.

EADR using Windows WAIK/ADK is similar between Windows Servers and Clients so this should be a qualification only issue.

Benefit:

Allow the user to recover not only individual files but also completely lost Windows 7, 8.1, 10 systems e.g. after a hard drive crash or virus attack.
