Does anyone know if you can restore a BackUp Exec 10d job with Microsoft backup? Lets say I made regular backups of Server A with Backup Exec 10d. If it crashes can I restore data on another server, Server B, just using microsoft backup? (and yes, lets pretend that server b has the same tape drive that server a has.) Also, any refrences or documentation would be greatly appreciated.

just install 10d on the target server - dont put in a licence key and you get a 60 day trail - restore your files then uninstall it

You may be able to. I know you could with earlier versions of Backup Exec.
Actually I think Windows Backup was written by Backup Exec.

You will probably have to catalog the tape though.
Try it on your existing system. Make a backup using BE. Then see if you can restore a file using Windows backup.

File restores are compatible but not system state.
