In the Support tab on this Web page, you will find zip folders for both versions of the backup software. In addition to including the applicable driver, they contain a Release Notes file that will tell you how to determine which version you have and which backup software you need to use. Both versions of the U338-000 function the same with the only difference being the backup software they use.
