It could be that they backed up a PC being used as a terminal
for a VAX, and assumed that they backed up the data stored
on the VAX. Many users get confused between "terminal" and
"server", and if they design their own backup, it often suffers
from this kind of problem.
I have several customers using Windows to talk to VMS, and
they always claim that the operating system is "kermit".
