I want to read the raw data off an NT Backup tape (no need to interpret the save
sets I just want to manually patch something so raw reading is fine).
I tried the usual dd stuff with various block sizes (including those reported as
the ones being used under Windows XP) but I always get incorrect block size errors. Linux can read the tape in so far as it can move about from file to file.
dd if=/dev/nst0 ibs=16k > file.1
Win reports the block size as 16384.
