Hi, I'm trying out HoudahSpot and so far I'm very impressed.

I need to be able to use HoudahSpot on different machines and copy files with tags through a (windows) server.

Is there anything I have to do to copy the files with the tags intact?

I've tried to find info on open meta and read about people losing their tags when backing them up or copying from one machine to another.

Tags should be preserved as long as you work with Macs and HFS+ file systems.

Tags are also preserved by DropBox syncing.

You may want to try if tags are preserved if you zip your files prior to transiting through Windows.
If that does not work, you will probably need to resort to a DMG disk image.
