Restoring Server 2003 NTBackup onto Server 2012

Hi,

I have a failed Windows Server 2003 Server. I need to restore the files from a recent NTBackup made on it. I need to restore it to Server 2012. Obviously NTBackup doesn't run on Server 2012 so I need some suggestions on opening the .bkf file on the 2012 server and restoring the files.

Many thanks.
