obligations to the Bank, the Bank is not required to return such bills and

                      deemed difficult for causes not attributable to the Bank;
                      or

                (iv)  the omission of presentment or delivery of such bills and

the preceding Paragraph, the Bank may make appropriations in such order and in
such manner as the Bank deems proper, and the Customer cannot object to such
appropriation.

is likely to interfere with the preservation of the Bank's credit rights, the
Bank may, upon objecting thereto without delay, make appropriations in such
order and in such manner as the Bank designates, taking into consideration
factors such as whether or not the obligations are secured or guaranteed, the
extent of coverage by such security or guarantee, the degree of difficulty to
dispose of such security, the due dates of the obligations, the prospects for
clearance of discounted bills and notes, etc. In such cases, the Bank shall
notify the Customer the result of such appropriation.

preceding two Paragraphs, the Bank may designate the order and manner of such

obligations according to records on the Bank's books, vouchers, etc.

Bank substitute bills and notes or instruments, etc. The Customer shall bear any
damages arising in such cases, except for cases where such damages were due to
causes attributable to the Bank.

damaged due to unavoidable circumstances as set forth in the preceding
Paragraph, the Customer shall bear any damages arisen in such cases, except for
cases where such damages were due to causes attributable to the Bank.

        3. Even if the Bank's rights on bills and notes are ineffective due to
lack of legal requirements in the bills and notes or due to invalidating entries
thereon, or if the Bank's rights on the bills and notes lapse due to inadequacy
in the procedures for preservation of the Bank's rights, the Customer shall be
liable for the face value of such bills and notes.

        4. As long as the Bank has verified and concluded with due care that the
Customer's seal impression or signature on bills and notes or instruments are
the same as the seal impression or specimen signature registered with the Bank,
the Customer shall bear any damages arising from forgery, alteration, wrongful
use of bills and notes, instruments, seals or signatures, and shall be liable in
accordance with the terms and conditions of such bills and notes or instruments.


     5.   The Customer shall bear the expenses incurred in exercising or 
preserving the Bank's rights against the Customer, or in collecting or 
disposing of any security, and/or the expenses required when the Customer 
requests the Bank's cooperation in the preservation of the Customer's rights,

proceeding.

received at the time they normally would have been received.

GUARANTY GUARANTY dated as of October 3, 2001 made by VERITAS Software Global Corporation, a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware (the "A Guarantor") and VERITAS Operating Corporation, a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware (the "B Guarantor"), and VERITAS Software Corporation, a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware (the "C Guarantor") in favor of THE FUJI BANK, LIMITED (the "Bank"). The A Guarantor, B Guarantor and C Guarantor shall be jointly and severally liable hereunder, and the term "Guarantor" wherever used herein shall be construed to refer separately to each of the A Guarantor, B Guarantor and the C Guarantor or collectively to both of the A Guarantor, B Guarantor and the C Guarantor as the case may be. PRELIMINARY STATEMENTS: The Bank has entered, or may from time to time enter, into agreements or arrangements with VERITS Software KK, a corporation organized under the laws of Japan, (the "Counterparty"), providing for credit extensions or financial accommodations to the Counterparty of any kind whatsoever, including but not limited to the making of loans, advances or overdrafts, whether or not secured, discount or purchase of notes, securities or other instruments or property, creation of acceptances, issuance or confirmation of letters of credit, guaranties or indemnities, entering into foreign exchange contracts or interest rate or currency swap or protection agreements or any other kind of contract or agreement under which the Counterparty may be indebted to the Bank in any manner (all of the foregoing agreements or arrangements being the "Transactions" and any writing evidencing, supporting or securing a Transaction being a "Transaction Document"). The Guarantor owns 100%, 100% and 100%, respectively, of the stock or other ownership interests of the Counterparty and is financially interested in its affairs. Therefore, in consideration of the Guaranty and in order to induce the Bank to enter into or extend credit or give financial accommodation with respect to the Transactions, the Guarantor agrees as follows: SECTION 1. GUARANTY OF PAYMENT. The Guarantor unconditionally, irrevocably, jointly and severally guarantees to the Bank and its successors, endorsees, transferees and assigns, as primary obligor and not merely as surety, the punctual payment of all sums now owing or that may in the future be owing by the Counterparty with respect to the Transactions, when the same are due and payable, whether on demand, at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, and whether for principal, interest (including, without limitation, default interest), purchase price, margin or additional payments, fees, expenses, cost of replacement transactions, indemnification or otherwise (all of the foregoing sums being the "Liabilities") (; provided, however, that the obligations of the Guarantor hereunder shall not exceed at any one time with respect to the aggregate principal amount of the Transactions the sum of One Billion Japanese Yen). The Liabilities include, without limitation, interest accruing after the commencement of a proceeding under bankruptcy, insolvency or similar laws of any jurisdiction at the rate or rates provided in the Transaction Documents. This Guaranty is a guaranty of payment and not of collection only. The Bank shall not be required to exhaust any right or remedy or take any action against the Counterparty or any other person or entity or any collateral. The Guarantor agrees that, as between the Guarantor and the Bank, the Liabilities may be declared to be due and payable for the purposes of this Guaranty, notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition that may prevent, delay or vitiate any declaration as regards the Counterparty and that in the event of a declaration or attempted declaration, the Liabilities shall immediately become due and payable by the Guarantor for the purposes of the Guaranty. SECTION 2. GUARANTY ABSOLUTE. The Guarantor guarantees that the Liabilities shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of the Transactions regardless of any law, regulation or order now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction affecting any of such terms or the rights of the Bank with respect thereto. The liability of the Guarantor under this Guaranty is absolute and 1 unconditional irrespective of: (a) any change in the time, manner or place of payment, of or in any terms of, all or any of the Transaction Documents or Liabilities, or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from any of the terms of any Transaction Document or Liability; (b) any release or amendment or waiver of, or consent to departure from, any other guaranty or support document, or any exchange, release or nonperfection of any security or collateral, for all or any of the Transaction Documents or Liabilities; (c) any present or future law, regulation or order of any jurisdiction (whether of right or in fact) or of any agency thereof purporting to reduce, amend, restructure or otherwise affect any term of any Transaction Document or Liability; (d) without being limited by the foregoing, any lack of validity or enforceability of any Transaction Document or Liability or any failure to receive any governmental approval relating thereto; (e) any other defense whatsoever that might constitute a defense available to, or discharge of, the Counterparty or a guarantor (including, without limitation, the bankruptcy or, reorganization of the Counterparty). If any guarantor (including the Guarantor) has provided or hereafter provides you with any guaranty or security for the transactions between the Bank and the Counterparty, other than this Guaranty, such guaranty or security shall not be changed, modified or affected in any way whatsoever by this Guaranty. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, if any guarantor has provided or hereafter provides the Bank with any other guaranty or security with a limitation in amount, this Guaranty shall be in addition to and shall not be reduced by such limit. SECTION 3. GUARANTY IRREVOCABLE. This Guaranty is a continuing guaranty and shall remain in full force and effect until payment in full of all Liabilities and other amounts payable under this Guaranty and until the Transactions are no longer in effect. SECTION 4. REINSTATEMENT. This Guaranty shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time any payment of any of the Liabilities is rescinded or must otherwise be returned by the Bank on the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of the Counterparty or otherwise, all as though the payment had not been made. SECTION 5. SUBROGATION. The Guarantor shall not exercise any rights that it may acquire by way of subrogation, by any payment made under this Guaranty or otherwise, until all the Liabilities have been paid in full and the Transactions are no longer in effect. If any amount is paid to the Guarantor on account of subrogation rights under this Guaranty at any time when all the Liabilities have not been paid in full, the amount shall be held in trust for the benefit of the Bank and shall be promptly paid to the Bank to be credited and applied to the Liabilities, whether matured or unmatured or absolute or contingent, in accordance with the terms of the Transactions. If the Guarantor makes payment to the Bank of all or any part of the Liabilities and all the Liabilities are paid in full and the Transactions are not longer in effect, the Bank shall, at the Guarantor's request, execute and deliver to the Guarantor appropriate documents, without recourse and without representation or warranty, necessary to evidence the transfer by subrogation to the Guarantor of an interest in the Liabilities resulting from the payment. SECTION 6. SUBORDINATION. Without limiting the Bank's right under any other agreement, any liabilities owed by the Counterparty to the Guarantor in connection with any extension of credit or financial accommodation by the Guarantor to or for the account of the Counterparty, including but not limited to interest accruing at the agreed contract rate after the commencement of a bankruptcy or similar proceeding, are hereby subordinated to the Liabilities, and such liabilities of the Counterparty to the Guarantor, if the Bank so requests, shall be collected, enforced and received by the Guarantor as trustee for the Bank and shall be paid over to the Bank on account of the Liabilities but without reducing or affecting in any manner the liability of the Guarantor under the other provisions of the Guaranty. SECTION 7. PAYMENTS GENERALLY. All payments by the Guarantor shall be made in the manner, at the place and in the currency (the "Payment Currency") required by the Transaction Documents and payment in the Payment Currency shall be of the essence; provided, however, 2 that (if the Payment Currency is other than Japanese Yen) the Guarantor may, at its option (or, if for any reason whatsoever the Guarantor is unable to effect payments in the foregoing manner, the Guarantor shall be obligated to) pay to the Bank at its principal office the equivalent amount in Japanese Yen computed at the selling rate chosen by the Bank, or most recently in effect on or prior to the date the Liability becomes due, for cable transfers of the Payment Currency to the place where the Liability is payable. The Guarantor's obligation in respect of any sum due from it to the Bank hereunder shall, notwithstanding any payment in a currency other than the Payment Currency, be discharged only to the extent that on the Business Day following receipt by the Bank of any sum in such other currency the Bank may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the Payment Currency with such other currency: if the aggregate amount of the Payment Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to the Bank in the Payment Currency, the Guarantor agrees, as a separate obligation, to indemnify the Bank against such loss. SECTION 8. CERTAIN TAXES. (a) The Guarantor further agrees that all payments to be made hereunder shall be made without setoff or counterclaim and free and clear of, and without deduction for, any taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions, withholdings or restrictions or conditions of any nature whatsoever now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any country or by any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof or therein ("Taxes"), but excluding taxes imposed on income or capital of the Bank by the jurisdiction (or any political subdivision thereof) under the laws of which the Bank is organized, or in which its principal place of business or lending office is located. (b) If the Guarantor shall be required by law to withhold any Taxes from any amounts payable to the bank hereunder, (i) the amounts so payable to the Bank shall be increased to the extent necessary to yield to the Bank (after payment of all Taxes) the amounts payable hereunder in the full amounts so to be paid, (ii) the Guarantor shall make such withholdings, and (iii) the Guarantor shall pay the full amount withheld to the relevant tax or other authority in accordance with applicable law. Whenever any Tax is paid by the Guarantor, as promptly as possible thereafter the Guarantor shall send the Bank an official receipt showing payment thereof, together with such additional documentary evidence as may be required from time to time by the Bank. (c) In addition, the Guarantor agrees to pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or form the execution, delivery, registration, performance and enforcement of this Guaranty (hereinafter referred to as "Other Taxes"). (d) The Guarantor will indemnify the bank for, and reimburse the Bank promptly upon demand, the full amount of any Taxes or Other Taxes (including, without limitation, any Taxes or other Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section) paid by the bank (as the case may be), and any liability (including penalties, interests and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly and legally asserted. (e) Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Guarantor hereunder, the agreements and obligations of the Guarantor contained in this Section shall survive the payment in full of all amounts due on the Transactions. SECTION 9. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES. (a) The Guarantor represents and warrants that the execution, delivery and performance of this Guaranty: (i) has been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action; (ii) does not violate any agreement, instrument, law, regulation or order applicable to the Guarantor or its charter or bylaws; (iii) to its best knowledge and belief does not require the consent or approval of any person or entity, including but not limited to any governmental authority, or any notice or filing or registration of any kind; and (iv) is the legal, 3 valid and binding obligation of the Guarantor enforceable against the Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except to the extent that enforcement may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency and other similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally or by general principles of equity. (b) The Guarantor is a corporation duly organized and validly existing under the laws of the jurisdiction as heretofore mentioned, and has all requisite corporate power and authority to conduct its business, to own its properties and to execute and deliver, and perform all of its obligations under, this Guaranty. (c) There are no actions, suits or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of the Guarantor, threatened against or affecting the Guarantor before any court, governmental agency or arbitrator, that may, in any one case or in the aggregate, materially adversely affect the financial condition, operations, properties or business of the Guarantor or the ability of the Guarantor to perform its obligations under this Guaranty. SECTION 10. COVENANTS. For so long as this Guaranty remains in effect, the Guarantor will: (a) Maintain ownership of the voting shares or other ownership interests of the Counterparty at the ratio heretofore mentioned; and (b) Furnish to the Bank, or cause the Counterparty to furnish to the Bank, such information respecting the condition or operations, financial or otherwise, of the Guarantor or the Counterparty, as the Bank may from time to time reasonably request. SECTION 11. REMEDIES GENERALLY. The remedies provided in this Guaranty are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law. SECTION 12. SETOFF. The Guarantor agrees that, in addition to (and without limitation of) any right of setoff, banker's lien or counterclaim the Bank may otherwise have, the Bank shall be entitled, at its option, to offset balances (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) held by it for the account of the Guarantor at any of the Bank's offices, in Japanese Yen or in any other currency, against any amount payable by the Guarantor under this Guaranty that is not paid when due (regardless of whether such balances are then due to the Guarantor), in which case it shall promptly notify the Guarantor thereof; provided that the Bank's failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity thereof. The Guarantor shall not set off its guaranty obligations hereunder against any deposits or other credits of itself or the Counterparty with the Bank. SECTION 13. FORMALITIES. The Guarantor waives presentment, notice of dishonor, protest, notice of acceptance of this Guaranty or incurrence of any Liability and any other formality with respect to any of the Liabilities of this Guaranty. SECTION 14. AMENDMENTS AND WAIVERS. No amendment or waiver of any provision of this Guaranty, nor consent to any departure by the Guarantor therefrom, shall be effective unless it is in writing and signed by the Bank, and then the waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given. No failure on the part of the Bank to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right under this Guaranty shall operate as a waiver or preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right. SECTION 15. EXPENSES. The Guarantor shall reimburse the Bank on demand for all costs, expenses and charges, including without limitation fees and charges of external legal counsel, for the Bank in connection with the performance or enforcement of this Guaranty. The obligations of the Guarantor under this Section shall survive the termination of this Guaranty. 4 SECTION 16. ASSIGNMENT. This Guaranty shall be binding on, and shall inure to the benefit of the Guarantor, the Bank and their respective successors and assigns, provided that the Guarantor may not assign or transfer its rights or obligations under this Guaranty. Except to the extent restricted by the relevant Transaction Documents, the Bank may assign, sell participations in or otherwise transfer, with the approval of the Guarantor, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, its rights with respect to the Transactions and the Transaction Documents to any other person or entity and the other person or entity shall then become vested with all the rights granted to the Bank in this Guaranty or otherwise.
