We have a set of backup tapes created by Legato Networker
backup software. Are there any freeware/shareware tools
available to read and recover files from these tapes?

Hi,

   Unfortunately, then asnwer is no. You'll have to use the Legato client to recover files from those tapes. Legato uses
a special index records for each file about 200 bytes and also maintain a media index that tracks which savesets are stored on each backup volume that you use. Those information are proprietary and cannot be read by another software/freeware.
