Pls help me immediately ya . Very urgent .

With Advanced Thanks

dd bs=1024 count=1000000 if=/dev/rmt0 of=/tmp/tape-dump

That's a restore. Dot.
But if you need to access files within the backup, you need to know the format of the tape and the dumped data.

I've never tried it, but mtf-0.2.1 (http://ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/system/backup/!INDEX.html) claims to be able to read an NT Backup tape.
