I came across some old project files that were backed up ont 3.5" floppies using MS-DOS 5.X (probably) "Backup" command. This command creates two files on the floppy: BACKUP.00X and CONTROL.00X, where X=Disk Number. So if the Backup requires more than one 1.44Mb floppy, there will be BACKUP.001, .002, etc.

I need to "Restore" these on my Windows 2000 machine. Anyone know of a utility to do this. A Google search turned up a lot of documentation for how the Backup/Restore system works, but I haven't found a program that will do it, yet. I continue to search, but hopefully someone here has or knows of the way to do it.

Notice how deftly I avoided the "h" word?

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried using NTBACKUP from a DOS box?

I have some old disks too, and would be interested to know if this works.
