Frequently Asked Questions
Why the name “Vorta”?
Vorta are a race referenced in Star Trek. After dying they are replaced by their cloned backup. Just like your data.
Can I use Vorta on Windows?
Borg, the underlying library we use doesn’t work directly with Windows, but works on Windows 10 WSL 1 and 2. See this Github issue for details.
Vorta is based on Qt, which also works on Windows. Get in touch if you have a working setup on Windows.
