Please check that I'm getting this right.

* You've got the director running on a CentOS machine.
* You've got file daemons running on Windows machines.
* You want to restore files from CentOS director to Windows clients.

Is that right? If so, you can restore from the director on CentOS to 
the file daemons on Windows without further ado.

The one bit you need to have is a separate Windows restore job, e.g.,

Job {
   Name = WinRestore
   Type = Restore
   Client = << i use the FD on the server here >>
   # .. other standard job directives ..
   Where = "C:/Temp/Bacula"
