BackUp Exec Mystery!!!

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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
