Dear All,

Recently, I received a DDS3 tape cartridge from my client which is backed up using "Backup Manager" tool of Winnt 4.0.

        My question is, Is it possible to restore the cartridge backed in Winnt to Linux. If it is possible, how to restore it?

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.
