Iomega does not see my files

I use an Iomega 100 external tape drive to restore my son's database backup to my laptop, which worked fine until he moved his database from Windows 95 to Windows 98. Now I have the silly situation where both the Micrsoft Backup and the Iomega Backup programs will see the files I want in the Backup bit, but never find them in the Restore bit of the program. I have tried renaming the files to try to match what they appear to be looking for, but to no avail. I have two laptops, one with Windows 95 and one with Windows 98SE, but the situation is the same in both. Is there anything I can do to get back to the once happy situation?

first, i never use a program to backup, if i take a backup it's a plain copy, or a zip backup (with backupExpress), so i can read the files evverywhere. This does not help you, but on the laptop with win95, the backup program should work. Can you reinstall win95 on that laptop again, and restore the files? otherwise read here :
